Robustness, evidence, and uncertainty: an exploration of policy applications of robustness analysis

Nicolas Wüthrich
Policy-makers face an uncertain world. One way of getting a handle on decision-making in such an environment is to rely on evidence. Despite the recent increase in post-fact figures in politics, evidence-based policymaking takes centre stage in policy-setting institutions.
