”This book compiles nine cases. The introductory chapter comprises a synthesis of the cases and the lessons learned from them. Comparing and contrasting the different cases, it identifies key factors that stimulate policy-relevant research and better use of evidence for policy-making. These lessons can be especially valuable for developing countries, where resources are limited and better understanding of the trade-offs implied by alternative policy choices is needed.”
