Call for Papers
Behavioural Science & Policy
21‐23 April 2015
University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom
The Network for Integrated Behavioural Science (NIBS) is hosting an international and interdisciplinary conference on behavioural science and policy. Behavioural science is a flourishing and growing field that is offering novel and important insights into individual and social decision making. Behavioural scientists are also incorporating their insights into social and political discourse to design more effective and behaviourally informed policy solutions. This development is encouraged by governments and institutions around the world including the UK where the Behavioural Insights Team (“Nudge Unit”) is deploying ideas from behavioural science to develop and drive policy, for example, in the domains of tax collection, unemployment, organ donation, or energy consumption, or the World Bank in its 2015 Development Report in which they apply behavioural insights to development policies addressing poverty, finance, health, or climate change. This conference is aimed at bringing together scholars from different fields interested in presenting their latest research on topics at the intersection between the behavioural sciences and policy making.
NIBS is a collaborative research initiative between three of the UK’s primary centres for behavioural science research: the CeDEx group at the University of Nottingham; the CBESS group at the University of East Anglia; and the Behavioural Science groups (Warwick Business School and Psychology) at the University of Warwick. NIBS is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
The scientific program will consist of four keynote lectures and a number of contributed talks organised in parallel sessions.
