Towards a Framework for Analysing Interactions between Social Science and Environmental Policy
Parry, Sarah; Murphy, Joseph
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v9 n4 p531-546 Nov 2013
Interactions between social science and environmental policy have become increasingly important over the past 25 years. There has, however, been little analysis of the roles that social scientists adopt and the contributions they make. In this paper we begin the process, offering tentative answers to two key questions: in relation to environmental problems: (1) how do social science and public policy interact? and (2) in the future, what types of interactions can social scientists engage in? To answer these questions we build on research in policy studies and science and technology studies, and extend it through public scholarship debates.
