Synthesizing evidence from randomized evaluations on youth employment through J-PAL’s Policy Insights
J-PAL produces J-PAL-branded Policy Insights that synthesize global evidence with the goal of providing a tool to inform policy decisions with scientific evidence. J-PAL’s academic chairs and staff draw these insights from randomized evaluations. Policy Insights summarize J-PAL’s perspective on the evidence on a topic, with links to the original research and policy summaries. Within this broader effort, the J-PAL Labor Markets Sector has committed to producing Policy Insights through December 2020 that focus on how to help young people succeed in the world of work. The lead entity is J-PAL, and the source of financing is J-PAL core funding.
