IMISCOE POLICY BRIEF NO. 15:
RESEARCH POLICY DIALOGUES ON MIGRATION AND INTEGRATION IN EUROPE

11/06/2009

The research-policy dialogues in the domains of migration and integration are increasingly contested. Policymakers often complain about the lack of clear scientific evidence upon which to base their policy decisions. Meanwhile, researchers seem increasingly disenchanted with the impact of their studies and the difficulties of delivering ‘unwelcome messages’. This policy brief argues that scientific facts alone are not enough to inform and support policymaking. Social research should constantly reproduce its credibilty and should be looking for alternative approaches to societal issues, but also reflect on policy alternatives to reach beyond the role of speaking truth to power and `make sense together'. One single model for organising the research-policy nexus does however not exist, as the authors show by shortly presenting various models in different national settings.
