Spaces of Evidence is a global network of scholars, practitioners and activists exploring the intersections of politics, measurement and evidence-based policy in health, development, economics, medicine and beyond. Drawing on medical anthropology, sociology, science and technology studies, philosophy and law, contributors traverse and illuminate the “spaces” of evidence: where and under what social and political circumstances is evidence produced? How inclusive or exclusive are spaces of evidence? Enlarging the sphere of debate, this collaborative project opens the black ‘base’ of evidence-based policy.
