Scientific policy adviceConPolicy participates in panel discussion at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development

Insights from behavioral science and social sciences have never been as popular in designing policy measures as currently. The Behavioural Insights Team in the United Kingdom and the World Bank are just two examples for the transfer of behavioral insights to different policy areas.

How this transfer works successfully, what to consider and which challenges to expect were the topics at a panel discussion with ConPolicy director Prof Dr Christian Thorun at the Summer Institute on Bounded Rationality at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development in Berlin. Prof Dr Mandeep Dhami (Middlesex University London) and Dr Malte Petersen (Simply Rational) were also ready to take the junior scientists’ questions in the panel chaired by Prof Dr Ralph Hertwig (MPI).
