Nudging all over the world: Assessing the Impacts of the Behavioural Sciences on Public Policy

Mark Whitehead, Rhys Jones, Rachel Howell, Rachel Lilley, Jessica Pykett

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This report is the first of its kind. It provides a global overview of the emerging influence of the behavioural sciences (and nudging practices) on the design and implementation of public policy. While previous research (see Ly and Soman 2013) has reported on the influence of the behavioural sciences (such as behavioural economics, behavioural psychology, and neuroscience) on the activities of governments in different places around the world, none has provided a systematic global survey. Reflecting on public policy initiatives in 196 countries, the report considers where nudge-type policies have developed and the particular forms they have taken.
