  • Discussion   |   Jarná Itapa 2018
  • Can Behavioural Insights Improve Public Policy in Slovakia?   |   Jarná Itapa 2018
    During the presentation we will talk about behavioural economics and how psychological theory and an experimental approach can have real policy impact. We will also give a first-hand account of the work of UK Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) (or Nudge Unit as we quickly became known). The questions the presentation will try to cover are:
    • What are some of the big successes of applying behavioural insights to policy?
    • What are the challenges? What hasn't worked?
    • How BIT managed to overcome some of the early skepticism of applying psychology to public policy? 
    • How do we make policy more evidence based?
    • (more speculatively...) what could this mean for public policy in Slovakia?
