The Role Of Boundary Organisations In The Social Status Of Climate Change Knowledge, Robert Hoppe, Anne Wesselink, Rose Cairns Jan 2012

The Role Of Boundary Organisations In The Social Status Of Climate Change Knowledge, Robert Hoppe, Anne Wesselink, Rose Cairns

Robert Hoppe

A plethora of institutional forms has emerged whose remit is to link climate change science to policy-making. These can be understood as boundary organisations where science and politics meet and intertwine. This article examines the role of boundary organisations in the production and social status of climate change knowledge. A multi-level conceptual model is outlined which demonstrates how context is crucial to understanding the operation and impact of boundary organisations. The framework is applied to analyse climate governance boundary arrangements at the international level and a number of national contexts. In the framing years of the global climate change issue ...


If Post-Normal Science Is The Solution, What Is The Problem?, Robert Hoppe, Anne Wesselink Jan 2011

If Post-Normal Science Is The Solution, What Is The Problem?, Robert Hoppe, Anne Wesselink

Robert Hoppe

Post-normal science (PNS) is presented by its proponents as a new way of doing science that deals with uncertainties, value diversity or antagonism, and high decision stakes and urgency, with the ultimate goal of remedying the pathologies of the global industrial system for which, according to Funtowicz and Ravetz (1993, 739) existing science forms the basis. We critically examine whether PNS can fulfil this claim in the light of empirical and theoretical work on politics and policymaking. We credit PNS as innovative frontrunner in raising important issues regarding the limited problem-solving capacity of ‘normal science’ and ‘professional consultancy’. Yet, we ...

From ‘Knowledge Use’ Towards ‘Boundary Work’. Sketch Of An Emerging New Agenda For Inquiry Into Science-Policy Interaction., Robert Hoppe Jan 2010

From ‘Knowledge Use’ Towards ‘Boundary Work’. Sketch Of An Emerging New Agenda For Inquiry Into Science-Policy Interaction., Robert Hoppe

Robert Hoppe

This chapter is about a new agenda for inquiry into the relationships between science and public policy. So far, most research has conceptualised this relationship in terms of knowledge utilisation and downstream impact on the policy process. However, this leads to over-instrumentalisation and serious attenuation of expert advice. Therefore, I propose a new perspective: interaction through boundary work, a concept expressing how expert advice simultaneously demarcates and coordinates science and public policy. Research shows that there are many different types of boundary work depending on various types of policy problems. This chapter concludes with a proposal for a multilevel model ...

Robert Hoppe

Hal Colebatch, Rob Hoppe and Mirko Noordegraaf (eds.) Working for Policy by Amsterdam University Press and Chicago University Press There are now many people involved in ‘making policy’, but there is not a great deal written about how they do it. Most of the books on policy tend to refer obliquely, if at all, to the actual practice of policy work, and offer little guidance to policy workers or students of policy. ‘Policy work’ seems to be something that you learn on the job. This book addresses directly the nature of policy work. It blends academic and experiential knowledge of ...
