About Us

Impact Evidence (IE) was created by researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU) to make high-quality academic research in development more accessible to policymakers, civil society actors, students, and any interested individuals. IE is a comprehensive database of over 800 policy impact evaluations from six respected research organizations:

IE was founded by Darren Hawkins, professor of political science; Daniel Nielson, professor of political science.

IE is generously funded by BYU’s College of Family, Home and Social Sciences, AidData, and USAID. Please contact us at ie@impactevidence.org.
