Evidence, Policy and Wellbeing: Evidence and Policy [This chapter considers the use of scientific evidence in policy.

Abstract

[This chapter considers the use of scientific evidence in policy. In doing so, it distinguishes between scientific evidence and other forms of knowledge—professional, political and experiential. It also unpacks the notion of policy, suggesting that the role of evidence can vary across different policy levels, types and fields. The chapter identifies various reasons for the use of evidence in policy and explains the intensification of this use in recent decades and different terms and concepts developed to capture this relationship. It then provides an overview of extant research on other What Works Centre policy areas that informed the research design for the empirical material collected for this book.]
