Abstract: The Realist Research Evaluation and Learning Initiative brings together researchers and evaluators skilled in applying “the realist approach” to complex policy problems. In this seminar, Rebecca, one of the team members, will give an introduction to who’s who in the team, explain what we do (i.e. what is “the realist approach”) with reference to an evaluation she is doing on gender and agroforestry, and also outline some of the ways the team could be of use to others across the Northern Institute and further afield. The seminar will be fun and informal, and there will be red velvet cake (for Valentine’s Day) and plenty of time for questions and discussions.

About Rebecca Hardwick: Rebecca Hardwick is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate working for the RREALI team at the Northern Institute. Her PhD from the University of Exeter was on how and why not-for-profit healthcare organisations use research and other kinds of knowledge. Prior to her PhD she worked in policy implementation for the UK Department of Health. She moved to Darwin with her husband in September 2018, and has found living and working in the NT surprisingly similar to the UK because of the number of conversations that can be had about the weather.
