The Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security (JenV; Justitie en Veiligheid) regards knowledge as an indispensable compass for well-founded and effective policy. A better use of knowledge would lead to the improvement of existing and new policies. Therefore, in 2017 the Ministry of JenV decided that the strategic knowledge function of the Ministry should be strengthened. The message was clear: knowledge management and knowledge innovation, steering for knowledge utilisation and knowledge development, should receive (more) attention within the Ministry of JenV. The aim of the present study is to gain an impression of the extent to which work activities and policymaking within JenV are 'evidence-based' and/or 'evidence-informed'. The main research question of the study is: to what extent can work activities and policymaking within the Ministry of JenV be characterised as 'evidence-based', and which institutional and contextual factors influence this?
