Abstract

This chapter examines the role that inspection plays in the creation and consumption of knowledge about the performance of public services. It first defines public services inspection. Section two then analyses the increasing importance of inspection in the management of public services. Section three considers theories of inspection. The fourth section explores the different kinds of knowledge generated by inspection and the uses to which this is put by policy-makers, practitioners and the public. The final section identifies some implications for future policy and research.
