Policy Analysis in Belgium, edited by Marleen Brans and David Aubin, is the latest book in Policy Press's series of national explorations of policy analysis. The Belgian volume is unique as it presents a lot of new empirical data that was specifically gathered for the book. I contributed to three chapters, all being the result of joint collaboration with colleagues from both sides of the language border.
