Principles and Structures of Evidence-to-Policy

Concepts and practices for how knowledge informs public policy, have changed dramatically since it emerged as a discrete area of study. Often these discursive shifts are brought about, or documented by, attempts to codify the Principles or Structures that should underpin the practice of science advice. How these have changed over the years are illustrative of how the field has evolved and is dealing with the challenges facing it and society.

These resources provide guidance on the current best practice, as well as track the critical moments that have faced this burgeoning field of thought. This list is not exhaustive and we appreciate INGSA members who are able to send us suggestions and links for the Resource Library – send your submissions to g.mills@auckland.ac.nz
