Abstract

Evidence-based policy making (EBPM) attempts to “rationalization of public policy itself” and “rationalization of the policy process”. This paper examines these arguments through public policy studies. Then, the following four implications were obtained. First, it is necessary to understand the context which related to the formulation and implementation of public policy. Second, in realizing EBPM, we must understand the knowledge of the policy process explains how to make policy. Third, the value and conceptualization contained in politics are important. Fourth, EBPM commits to not only knowledge utilization but also generation. Taking this point into account, EBPM will lead us to more radical technocracy that has strong influences, showing how to understand our world and politics, as well as political regimes.
