Abstract

Concern is mounting nationally and globally about the wellbeing of children and young people, with governments under increasing pressure to develop effective policies. There is considerable interest in how researchers can best support policymakers in this enterprise. This chapter presents the results of a reading, discussion and writing group that examined an eclectic range of literature for insights into improving research–policy interactions. The chapter is based on evaluating our experiences in research–policy interactions against ideas generated by reading about 200 books and journal articles.
