ARTD is a leading Australian public policy and evaluation consulting firm. We have been applying realist principles for over 10 years – we know that it can be hard to understand contexts and mechanisms or a generative theory of causation! We are realist pragmatists. Our approach is real world—we listen to our clients and apply our evaluation expertise to bring realist evidence and insight to decision makers.
