The Politics of Evidence: from Evidence Based Policy to the Good Governance of Evidence

Published by: Routledge (2017)

This open access book (free as an e-book) explores what it means to improve evidence use from the perspective of both scientific and democratic principles. It considers the origins of various forms of bias in evidence use and engages with questions of what good evidence for policy looks like, as well as what the good use of evidence in political systems might include.

It constructs the idea of the ‘good governance of evidence’ which represents the use of rigorous, systematic and technically valid pieces of evidence within decision-making processes that are representative of, and accountable to, populations served.
