Chapter 11: Policy learning in times of big data analytics: the challenges of skill-based outsourcing
Outsourcing of big data analytics due to a skill shortage in public administrations has affected policy learning at local level.

This chapter points towards such developments in the UK, where especially local learning is restricted by siloed data analytics systems largely owned and operated by private organisations.
