Well-being and Public Policy

Events • Debate

What difference should different concepts of well-being make to the way we approach public policy? How does the concept of well-being influence policy makers and governments? What do voters expect of government in terms of promoting well-being? How is the available information and research used and how should it be? 

This event was part of the British Academy Debates on Well-being.
