Abstract

Behaviour change is increasingly central to policy and politics. Nudge in recent debates has been linked to the reconfiguration of state-citizen relationship, the rise of particular forms of neoliberalism, or ‘neuroliberalism’, and new ways of policy making driven by behavioural-economic and social-psychological discourses and particular forms of governmentality. This panel discussion brings together experts and academics across different and overlapping disciplines to discuss contemporary challenges of nudge and public policy.
