Public interest groups in Germany use policy analysis in two crucial ways: They dig out empirical evidence for policy instruments and they seek to frame those instruments preferred. The chapter highlights striking differences between environmental groups and consumer groups by asking: What challenges are linked to evidence-based policy making± How is policy analysis turned into a powerful tool in public debates and political communication± What core functions does policy analysis fulfil for public interest groups in Germany and what are its main shortcomings?
