Wojtowicz, Dominika Maria; Kupiec, Tomasz – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
For many European Union (EU) member states, the Cohesion Policy (CP) was the channel through which the practice of evaluation was transmitted into domestic administration. Studies have shown that the EU member countries differ in terms of their evaluation capacity and activity. None of those studies, however, addresses regional governments, which…

Morton, Sarah; Seditas, Karen – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Barriers to using research in practice are well documented. This paper describes an innovative process developed by the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships to address these barriers. We supported people to define what they needed to know; how existing evidence could help; and how to use evidence in practice. An action-focused…

Geddes, Marc; Dommett, Katharine; Prosser, Brenton – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In the context of ongoing debates around academic engagements with policymakers, this article discusses how academics can successfully engage with the often overlooked institution of Parliament.

To maximise the potential impact and acceptability of EIDM capacity building, there is a need for programmes to coordinate their remits within existing systems, playing both 'insider' and 'outsider' roles. Through a review of the South African evidence-policy landscape and analysis of a stakeholder event that brought together EIDM role players,…

Wyndham-West, Michelle; Wiktorowicz, Mary; Tsasis, Peter – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
This article captures how scientific uncertainty is negotiated and its implications on public health policy.

Vallgårda, Signild – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In 2003 an executive order was issued banning industrially produced trans-fatty acids above a low level in food items in Denmark. To date, only a few other countries have followed Denmark's example. The way health consequences of trans fats were translated by the different actors enabled the creation of alliances between researchers, politicians,…

Stender, Steen; Dyerberg, Jørn; Astrup, Arne – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In this paper, Signild Vallgårda (SV) investigates why a ban against the use of industrially produced trans fatty acids in foods was introduced in Denmark as the first country in the world. SV correctly states that our part of, and activity in that process, represent a combination of scientific work and 'policymaking'. We, however object to some…

Mendel, Jonathan – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
The use of trials in the policy process is often presented as a move towards evidence-based policy and away from authority-, ideology- or faith-based policy. However, this paper will draw on two UK examples of unpublished policy trials in order to argue that when policy is based on such research it should not usually be described as…

The value of evidence-based policy is well established, yet major hurdles remain in connecting policymakers with the wider research community. Here we assess whether a UK Evidence Information Service (EIS) could facilitate interaction between parliamentarians and research professionals. Fifty-six UK parliamentarians were interviewed to gauge the…

Barnsley, Kathryn; Walters, E. Haydn; Wood-Baker, Richard – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2017
Tasmania led in several areas of tobacco control legislation reform in the period 1997 to 2010. Despite this, Tasmania lagged in other crucial areas, particularly the allocation of resources for community education, mass media campaigns and cessation programmes. Key impediments were crony capitalism; the conservative ideology of "white…
