Science–policy interface in development policy: challenges and innovations
Critically analyse the idea of science-policy interface in addition to what is working or not working, and why, as explained in the articles. You cannot provide a critique of the entire article, but you can provide the critique of the relevant section within the article that relates to the topic of science policy interface.
This critique shall be based on critical review of the literature, mostly conceptual, but some empirical literature review fine. If you critically review about 5-8 good quality journal articles, it should be sufficient. The quality of the critique depends on your ability to engage with the literature and develop your convincing arguments. The critique is primarily about:
a) how we could understand what science-policy interfaces are?
b) how they work (or they don’t work)?
c) where and why they succeed (or they fail)?
d) how to improve them?
