This chapter examines the various ways in which the relationships between research and policy and research and practice have been conceptualised and modelled. It notes that earlier rational and linear models are now being rejected in favour of more interactive approaches that draw on interpretivist accounts of the social construction of knowledge. It adds that postmodern frameworks provide an additional critical edge to these analyses.
