Research-based evidence in African policy debates Case study 3 The contemporary debate on genetically modified organisms in Zambia Research-based evidence in African policy debates Case study 3 The contemporary debate on genetically modified organisms in Zambia

The link between research and policy is a complex one. Policy is framed by the discursive context in which it is made: the wider debate in which a policy is positioned effectively determines it. In order to probe this discursive context and the role of researchbased evidence in informing it, the Politics of Research-based Uptake in African Policy Debates research project investigates the role of research-based evidence in four policy debates in Africa during the period October 2010–November 2011.
