Nudging Citizens Towards Localism?
Posted by Martin Ryan
Nudging Citizens Towards Localism? was released on 16th May by the British Academy Policy Centre. The research found that "the exact relationship between government action, citizen behaviours and effective public outcomes remains hazy, despite examples of good practice and robust evidence across government. There are real opportunities to use the nudge approach at a local level, but without more experiments to close the gap in evidence, government is unlikely to achieve more than moderate changes in citizen behaviour." More information about the report is available here.
