An exploration of how the knowledge gained from research is used to improve the effectiveness of public policy formation and public service delivery. Covering eight areas of public service - health, education, criminal justice, social policy, transport, urban policy, housing and social care, the text provides a cross-sector examination of the role of research evidence in shaping public policy and practice. It uses experts in each field and examines the creation, dissemination and use of evidence within each.
