Setting the Agenda for an Evidence-based Olympics is a RAND Europe initiative that reveals how our rigorous research and analysis can help policy and decision makers to address the immense challenges of London’s Olympic Games. RAND Europe explored the evidence base from past Olympic Games and other major events, and developed a meta-analysis that reveals some of the hard questions that must be asked across a range of topics if sensible, effective and valid decisions are to be made for London 2012. Taking this a step further, we outline research frameworks for transport and security, demonstrating how to put the evidence base into the context of London in the present and London in five years’ time.
