Original Thinking Lecture: Felicity Algate

How behavioural insights has transformed public policy, and what next

In this Original Thinking Lecture, Felicity Algate, Professor of Practice at Alliance MBS, will address how behavioural insights has transformed public policy, and what comes next.

Felicity will talk about the evolution of behavioural insights from a phrase coined by a small government team in 2010 to a policy approach which touches the lives of millions of people around the world. She will also discuss her current areas of focus and where behavioural insights might be used in the next 10 years.

This event will be facilitated by Liz Richardson, Professor of Public Administration at the University of Manchester.
