Behavioural Public Policy is a new emerging discipline that uses behaviour insights to inform evidence-based public policies. This hands-on course offered by VU Amsterdam will introduce students to the fundamental building blocks behavioural science and public policy. The course is divided into four main parts: History of Behavioural Economic Thoughts, Theories and Tools of behavioural public policy, Methods for evaluating behavioural public policies, and BPP applications in three emerging field fields: climate change and environment, misinformation, and public health (pandemics). The course will be delivered jointly in the form of lectures and seminars/practicals to enable students to learn about and design their own behavioural public policies.
