Abstract

A concept is developed of the science-policy relationship that builds on the notion of policy as theory; policy is seen as developing its own `quasi-scientific' imperatives, leading to an informal knowledge production that is policy-specific rather than bound to science. The science-policy dialogue can be understood and manageed in this light.
