Résumé:

Expertise – and scientific expertise more specifically – is seen as crucial to public health decision-making. The idea that, in order to deal with increasingly complex problems in this regard, decision-makers must rely on experts and the knowledge they mobilize is no longer questioned. Yet the articulation of expertise and public decision-making is not self-evident. Both expertise and the place experts should have in decision-making processes are a core issue in many debates.
