The role of knowledge in the construction and regulation of health and education policy in Europe : convergences and specificities among nations and sectors

Objective

In Europe, information and expertise are now more widely available and distributed than ever before. At the same time, expectations of transparency and public accountability have increased. In turn, the legitimacy of political processes depends on the legitimacy of the knowledge on which they draw. Both social cohesion and effective government depend on integrating knowledge as well as interests.

Responding to this new reality, the research is organized around three complementary orientations. Orientation 1 seeks to map the knowledge potentially available to decision makers, and trace the relationships between those who hold or produce such knowledge and those who take policy decisions. Orientation 2 analyses decision-making processes as such, paying special attention to the way information and understanding are deployed and learning takes place at different stages.
