This chapter provides a discussion of the location and relative worth of public engagement initiatives in the current political and economic climate which is dominated by neoliberalism and the market. It is suggested that different values and imaginaries are brought to bear on public engagement along with dynamism and creativity of people in dialogue. The chapter focuses on one example of a public engagement initiative, Social Science in the City which is subject to competing discourses and policies on evidence-gathering and impact assessment.

Keywords:   Public engagement, Social science in the city, Evidence-gathering, Impact assessment
