This book analyses the role of evidence in taking wellbeing from an
issue that has government attention to one that leads to
significant policy change. In doing so, it draws on contributions
from political science, policy theory and literature specifically
on the evidence and policy relationship. The book has three main
aims: to understand the role of evidence in shaping the prospects
for wellbeing in public policy; to inform the barriers literature
on the use of evidence in policy; and, to inform the multiple
streams approach (MSA) to agenda-setting. While the book focuses on
developments at UK government level, a number of the findings and
arguments presented here have wider significance, both in relation
to wellbeing developments elsewhere and to the theoretical
literatures on agenda-setting and evidence use. The book draws on
insights from interviews with policy-makers and stakeholders that
were undertaken as part of the work of the Community Wellbeing
Evidence Programme of the What Works Centre for Wellbeing.
