Nudge and the State
Tuesday, 4 November 2014 from 14:00 to 15:30 (GMT)

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 is to bring together experts and academics across different and overlapping disciplines to discuss contemporary challenges of nudge and public policy.
