CAPEcast episode 8: Informing or influencing

CAPE Policy Fellow from the Ministry of Justice Roshnee Patel joins Sarah Chaytor to discuss the different roles that academics can play when engaging with policy, how important it is to clearly articulate as a researcher whether you’re seeking to inform or influence, and the diversity of voices and evidence involved in developing policy solutions.
