This book provides theories, experiences, reflections and future directions for social scientists who wish to engage with policy-oriented research in, and for, cities and regions. The 'policy learning' perspective is comprehensively discussed, focusing on actors promoting 'policy knowledge' and interaction among different stakeholders. Theoretical frameworks and practical experiences of policy-orientated research for European regions and cities are comprehensively explored in this timely book. The authors review current theories and present novel case studies of policy-orientated research. By combining policy analysis with urban and regional studies, the book highlights how researchers can be agents of policy learning, helping policymakers to learn how to learn. This book offers unique, real world insights for researchers, practitioners and stakeholders interested in research-based approaches to cities and regions.

Recensioner i media

This volume is a great resource for scholars and students of policy-oriented research seeking to understand the research-policy nexus.' -- Elvira Uyarra, Regional Studies 'I believe this book is very compelling, offers a number of interesting -- materials and puts forward forceful messages. It can be very useful for students, scholars and policymakers, and for anyone interested in conducting policy-relevant research along the wide(ning) research-policy continuum.' - Luis Carvalho, Eurasian Geography and Economics 'At a time of major transformation in the relationship between research and policy, this is a timely and thought-provoking volume. The creation of knowledge, and its application to the design and implementation of policy, have new analytical possibilities from big and open data - as well as opportunities and obligations for the involvement of citizens in imaginative ways. This book draws and combines theoretical debates and practical experiences of policy learning from different institutional perspectives. It should be required reading for scholars and policymakers interested in fostering more effective research-policy dialogues.' -- John Bachtler, University of Strathclyde, UK 'This edited book proposes an original and very interesting analysis of the complex interaction between researchers and policymakers. Considering their different rationalities, the authors focus theoretically, methodologically, and empirically on the learning conditions which allow these two types of actors to interact with each other in and on the policy process.' -- Philippe Zittoun, University of Lyon, France 'A timely and very useful collection providing a fresh look at an old problem: the problematic relationship between policy research and policymaking. A necessary read for scholars interested in generating usable knowledge.' -- Bruno Dente, Politecnico di Milano, Italy
