Policy makers are a common target audience for economics research. To get your research seen and understood by policy makers it's essential that you are first clear about what the key message of your research are for policy. Policy makers will be interested in things like how relevant your findings are to the specific situation that they face, whether your results depend crucially on some key assumptions and issues of practical concern. The more you think through these issues before you try to communicate your findings, the more impactful your communication will be.
