How should policies be made? Ideally by policy makers making decisions after weighing the facts and reconciling the different values that exist in plural democratic societies.
Reality often looks different! Operating at both sides of the science-policy interface is made challenging due to the over-supply of knowledge on one side and the complexity of the political process on the other. The amount of information to be considered by the policy makers is overwhelming and ever more complex while our information processing can be skewed by our biases.
