R&D and Public Policy Making. R&D for Higher Education, 1980:2.
Bladh, Agneta; Premfors, Rune
Theoretical issues concerning research and policy-making and three empirical studies of the higher education sector in Sweden are discussed. A major concern is the utilization of social science research and development efforts by public policy makers. Additionally, the characteristics of the public policy-making processes that influence the scope and character of utilization are considered. Topics of empirical study include: the quantitative planning of higher education, social recruitment, the geographic location of higher education, policy-making organization of higher education, and educational methods in higher education. Additional concerns for empirical analysis are the part that research and development can and should play in the reform system of higher education and a followup of higher education reform in relation to cognitive production and the dissemination of knowledge.
