Moynihan shares ideas to bring together academics, policy practitioners

Donald Moynihan Donald Moynihan

Professor Donald Moynihan offers practical advice on bridging the gap between academics and policymakers in comments on an entry in a blog published by the journal Governance. "No silver bullet will vastly reduce the gap between policy and academia, and even with good-faith effort by scholars to provide evidence on key questions, policymakers can, and will, frequently ignore them. But more can be done," Moynihan writes in "Enough hand-wringing! Steps to bridge the academic-practitioner divide."
