Knowledge policies are becoming politically salient and increasingly politicised. Yet our understanding of the actors involved in knowledge policy-making in different countries, constraints they face from their institutional environment, their interplay and preferences is still limited. This panel invites papers that investigate the roles of different actors, including, for example, political parties, in knowledge policymaking. Contributions can focus on a specific group of actors, compare the role of different actors, or investigate the interplay between actors and their institutional environment across all stages of policy-making. All contributions should have a clear theoretical framework and provide empirical (comparative) analyses based on a sound methodology.
