Models and Communication in the Policy Process
Policy-making is a complex process that involves a variety of actors. Several difficulties of various nature intervene in such process, making the identification and implementation of successful policies especially difficult. The usefulness of models in addressing technical obstacles related to the incorrect understanding of the issues and inferring of policy impacts have been broadly investigated [1,2]. Beyond facilitating technical aspects of the policy process, models can also facilitate communication among actors involved in such process.
