The OECD publication Behavioural Insights and Public Policy: Lessons from Around the World presents the results of a first-of-its-kind survey of behavioural insights units around the world.

This report discusses the use and reach of behavioural insights, drawing on a comprehensive collection of case studies from across the world and policy sectors, including consumer protection, education, energy, environment, finance, health and safety, labour market policies, public service delivery, taxes and telecommunications. It suggests ways to ensure that this experimental approach can be successfully and sustainably used as a public policy tool.

WHAT IS BEHAVIOURAL INSIGHTS?

 

Behavioural insights aim at improving the welfare of citizens and consumers through policies and regulations that are formed based on empirically-tested results, derived using sound experimental methods. Behavioural insights is one discipline in a family of three, the others being behavioural sciences and behavioural economics, which mix traditional economic strategies with insights from psychology, cognitive science and other social sciences to discover the many “irrational” factors that influence decision making.
