RMNO and quality control of scientific advice to policy
Article | 01-06-2011
The quality control of scientific advice to policy makers is described from the position of an advisory council (RMNO).
Quality of scientific advice to policy-makers and what can be called good or bad practice depends on several factors:
- the nature of the policy problem (structured or unstructured) and the way scientists, policymakers and stakeholders see their roles with regard to knowledge production;
- the existing evaluation routines and institutions;
- the paradigmatic view on science/policy interactions (positivist or social constructivist) of those who evaluate.
