The Trinity of Policy-Making: Evidence, Causation and Argumentation

A project funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation (Workshops Grants Scheme)


News: The call for papers for the next workshop to take place in Helsinki on October 4-5, 2018 is out: Research Trust and Policy Workshop.

Running from 2015 to 2018, TRINITY brings together scientists, philosophers of science, argumentation scholars, and policy-makers to explore the notion of evidence-based policy, and to discuss the role of experts in the translation of scientific evidence into policy advice.


Generously supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, the TRINITY project’s official home is the Centre for Philosophy of Social Science at the University of Helsinki (contact: Carlo Martini). TRINITY also cooperates with the following projects:
