(p.49) Four Patterns of science–policy interaction
Policy analysis in the Netherlands

Robert Hoppe

Policy Press

In this chapter, the diversity of institutional patterns in science-policy-politics linkages in the Netherlands is addressed, as well as the wide-ranging ideological disagreements that form their backdrop. Using inductive accounts of the development of public expertise and policy analytic styles in the Netherlands over the last decades, I will show how at least three such patterns may be identified: a corporatist, a neo-liberal and a deliberative pattern. These various patterns cannot be interpreted as ingredients from one big transition from government to governance, nor as, jointly, making up a homogeneous national policy style. Rather, the patterns co-evolve and permeate each other, although loaded with ideological disagreements and contradictions.
