Behavioral change has become a core issue of public policy. Behavioral instruments such as ‘nudging’ apply insights from behavioral economics and behavioral sciences, psychology and neurosciences across a broad range of policy areas. Behavioral insights teams and networks facilitate the global spread of behavioral public policies. Despite an ever-growing amount of literature, research has remained fragmented. This comprehensive Handbook unites interdisciplinary scholarship, with contributions critically assessing the state and direction of behavioral public policies, their normative implications and political consequences.
