pdf.png The value of words: Narrative as evidence in policymaking 2012

(0 votes)

Download

Policymakers today rely primarily on statistical, financial, and other forms of technical data as their basis for decision-making. Yet, there is a potentially underestimated value in substantive reflections of the members of the public who will be affected by a particular piece of regulation. We discuss the value of narratives as input in the policy making process, based on our experience with Regulation Room–a product of an interdisciplinary initiative using innovative web technologies in real-time online experimentation. Based on our work with Regulation Room, we offer an initial typology of narratives–complexity, contributory context, unintended consequences, and reframing–as a first step towards overcoming conceptual barriers to effective civic engagement in policymaking.

Over the last decade the UK government has been promoting the concept of Evidence-based policy (EBP). Our partners in the South constantly ask about what is happening in the UK regarding EBP and what can they learn from the UK experience. The aim of this work is to identify lessons and approaches from EBP in the UK which may be valuable to developing countries.
