Behavioural Insights


Behavioural insights is the study of decision making and activity. Why do people make certain actions and how do they act in certain situations? 


The OECD has been working to understand how behavioural insights can help governments and regulators design policies in such a way that citizens make better decisions and actions for themselves.


A new report Behavioural Insights and Public Policy has over 100 case studies of its use in public policy with useful lessons from around the World.
