The Netherlands has long been internationally regarded as one of the leading sources of policy analysis and evaluation in Europe. This book, part of the International Library of Policy Analysis, offers a much-needed overview of developments in policy analysis in both academia and practice at various levels of governance, capturing the diversity of modes of policy analysis that have evolved since the 1970s.
Beryl Radin | Georgetown University
“This book is useful not only to policy analysts in the Netherlands but to readers across the globe who are looking for diverse models of the policy analysis enterprise. The interrelationship between the academic and practice aspects of the field in the Dutch setting is very important and instructive to readers.”
David L. Weimer | University of Wisconsin–Madison
“Perhaps more so than in any other country, professional policy analysis has been institutionalized and integrated into policy making in the Netherlands. The distinguished contributors provide a rich and fascinating account of this integration and speculate on its viability in the face of changing politics.”
William Dunn | University of Pittsburgh
“The contributions to the volume reflect the fact that much of policy analysis appears to be in a productive state of multidisciplinary turmoil. Thoughtful students and practitioners of policy analysis, whether situated in universities, public agencies, or independent centers of research, will want to have this distinguished volume in their libraries.”
