    Abstract

    The research presented in this report was conducted as part of the ESRC funded
    scopic network. It aimed to study the inter-relationship between policy, research and
    government with a view to making recommendations designed to enhance the
    influence of research on policy.
    The research involved a comparison of approaches to policy making in criminal
    justice and healthcare, and comprised a review of the relevant literature as well as
    interviews with 13 key policy makers in both fields.
    The concept of ‘evidence based policy’ raises a number of interesting questions,
    including: what kinds of evidence are used; what should the proper role of evidence
    in policy be; what are the obstacles to adopting an evidence-based approach to
    policy; how can the findings of research be made more policy relevant?, and; what
    can researchers and policy makers do to achieve a more productive relationship?
    These questions are addressed in this report.
