Applying Behavioral Insights to Public Policy
In partnership with the world’s leading authority on behavioral insights, the Behavioral Insights Team (BIT), the Graduate School of Public Policy offers an Executive Education program on Applying Behavioral Insights to Public Policy on 9-12 October 2017.
Policy-makers around the world have also begun to take seriously the insights offered by behavioral economics and psychology. A growing body of research shows a number of situations in which individuals act in ways that run counter to the predictions of standard economics. Our rationality, self-control and self-interest are all bounded in ways that have important implications for the way large organizations – governmental or private- design, implement and communicate policies.
This training is designed for policy analysts, researchers, managers, and other government professionals in policy and service delivery functions. It is also suitable for middle and senior level practitioners from non-profit organizations and service providers. We believe that these insights transcend all the sectors of the economy. As long as participants are interested in changing behavior in a prosocial way, this course will be of use to them.
The four-day program will be delivered by the Behavioral Insights Team (BIT) of UK. It offers a comprehensive introduction to the key ideas in behavioral insights, and equips policy officers with the foundations for formulating policies in a behaviorally compatible way.
