This chapter describes and offers practical strategies for the art of delivering written policy arguments. It analyses techniques for writing the report in a way that delivers the policy story, from understanding the nature of political reasoning in policy-making contexts, to special issues in data presentation for policymakers. It emphasizes that delivering findings in this genre is not just about research rigour; it is about particular strategic written communication skills.
