The evidence movement has rolled out in four waves since the 1990s: the results agenda, the rise of randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews and developing an evidence architecture. This revolution is uneven across sectors and countries and is an unfinished revolution. Drawing on experiences from around the world, this talk will provide a historical overview of the evidence movement and the challenges it faces. Responses to these challenges will be considered, including those offered by the work of CEDIL.
