Politics & Ideas, supported by INASP, is developing an online course aimed at supporting mid-level policymakers in Latin America interested in contributing to a vivid culture of using evidence in policymaking in the region. This survey seeks to get information about challenges, uses and interests related to the use of research by policy makers in developing countries, in order to incorporate them into the course content.
