ISSA Webinar: Linking research, policy analysis and innovation in social security

Activity: Talk or presentationPublic talk


Social security policymakers and practitioners depend on solid research and analysis to influence policies and administrative solutions aimed at increasing coverage and ensuring income and health security for individuals and their households. The need to effectively respond to a fast-changing environment and wide-reaching new challenges has resulted in unprecedented innovations in social security policy and operations across the globe. At the same time, the initiative, scope, and resources underpinning social security analysis have evolved considerably, including the potential to collect and manage large volumes of data on operations and beneficiaries. Against this backdrop, social security institutions display enormous diversity in the structures and resources they can devote to research and analysis. Well-resourced institutions may have strong in-house capacity to set and carry out long-running research agendas, while those in resource-constrained contexts are more reliant on externally driven and generated analysis.

Join this webinar that will launch an exciting project in the ISSA Collaborative Innovation Hub. The project aims to better understand how social security institutions, with different structures and resources, can more effectively engage with research, analytical and knowledge management processes to foster innovation. It will also examine the challenges and opportunities presented by new approaches, methods, and techniques used to inform new policies and administrative solutions.
