Critical thinking about the uses of research

book
posted on 2008-01-01, 00:00 authored by Tim Hope, Reece WaltersReece Walters
One of the promises of New Labour was that government policy would be grounded in ’evidence based research’. In recent years some academics have come to question whether the government has delivered on this promise. Professors Reece Walters and Tim Hope offer two contributions to this debate, arguing that rather than the ’evidence base’, it is political considerations that govern the commissioning, production and dissemination of Home Office research. As the first monograph in our ’Evidence based policy series’ Critical thinking about the uses of research carries a thought provoking set of arguments.
