Wise before the event: 20/25 years WRR

'Wise before the event' is appearing on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Netherlands Scientific Coucil for Government Policy (WRR).

This volume examines the contributions to government policy of think tanks in general and the Scientific Council for Government Policy in particular. How can the true worth of such institutions be measured and what problems arise in this context?

The volume furthermore presents documentation not previously available in this form: a register of think tanks in the world, bibliographies on the think tanks and the WRR, a survey of all the WRR's publications and the members of the successive Scientific Councils and the present WRR bureau.
