MIND SPACE – Influencing behaviour through public policy


Institute for Government (UK) | 2 March 2020


New insights from science and behaviour change could lead to significantly improved outcomes, and at a lower cost, than the way many conventional policy tools are used.

MINDSPACE explores how behaviour change theory can help meet current policy challenges.






A companion paper, Behavioural Government (below), was published in 2018. This new report builds on the Behavioural Insights Team’s work on applying behavioural insights to policymaking and the Institute for Government’s work on better policy making.
