In the introduction, we described this volume as a toolbox of ideas, perspectives and strategies related to policy approaches and their translation for action. The volume is also purposefully designed to function as a conversation between those from inside and outside the policymaking tent, and between people from policy, practice and academia (who have varying relationships to policy development and implementation). In keeping with the latter, we present our reflections and conclusions on the collection as a dialogue between the editors, who span practice and academic domains. Kathy Landvogt, a long-term policy actor from within the community sector, leads this discussion, and Jo Barraket and Gemma Carey respond from their academic perspectives. Through this dialogue, we identify where problems are located, identify what questions are critical and draw out the potential solutions as highlighted by different chapters in this book.
