"Knowledge in Policy" radically reconceives the place of knowledge in policy making in Europe, one that pays particular attention to the different forms that knowledge can take. Specifically, knowledge is embodied in people, inscribed in documents and instruments, and enacted in particular circumstances. In this book, Richard Freeman and Steve Sturdy gather case studies of health and education policies in contexts that demonstrate the essential interdependence of these different forms of knowledge. In doing so, they illustrate the ways in which knowledge is mobilized and resisted, drawing attention to key problems in the processing and transformation of knowledge in policy work.
