Because the study of public policies involves particular challenges, the Centre has developed a knowledge synthesis method that is adapted to meet them.

This method enables one to document the effects and equity of the policies under study, as well as implementation issues of interest to decision makers (costs, feasibility, acceptability), based on the construction of logic models, on the scientific and grey literatures, and on deliberative processes organized to collect contextual information.

This document summarizes, in a few pages, the main points relating to this knowledge synthesis method.
