Engagement with non-academic groups and actorssuch as policy-makers, industry, charities and activist groups, communities, and the publicin the coproduction of knowledge and real-world impact is increasingly important in academic research. Drawing on empirical research, interdisciplinary methodologies, and broad international perspectives, this book offers a critical examination of the liminal space of interactions between policy and research, showing this space to be far from apolitical. The authors consider what, and who, are present in these encounter spaces and examine how preexisting perceptions about differences in social identity, positionality, and knowledge can affect engagement, equity, and research outcomes.
