(p.229) Twelve Deliberative policy analysis
Evidence-Based Policy Making in the Social Sciences

John S. Dryzek

Policy Press

This chapter shows how open deliberation can enhance the legitimacy of policy making, and how it can also, as a science, overcome the bounded rationality of individuals. This chapter explores the value of deliberation in evaluation especially in an environment policy context, not as a tool for democracy per se but as toll for better policy. The social science background to these claims will be explored and examples given of the application of deliberation to better policy making. Finally, the strengths and weaknesses of the approach will be explored.

Keywords:   policy making, deliberation, evaluation, social science, environment policy
