Policy-Oriented Foresight as Evidence for Policy Making: Conditions of (Mis)Match
Fobé, Ellen; Brans, Marleen
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v9 n4 p473-492 Nov 2013
This article approaches policy-oriented foresight as a particular kind of evidence aimed at supporting and developing policies. Through a comparative case study, the article investigates the different ways in which evidence from policy-oriented foresight is used by policy makers. In explaining the factors behind differences in use between the cases, the findings emphasise the importance of the involvement of policy makers, stakeholder support, and the competition with other sources of evidence for policy.
