"Nudging" vs "Non-Nudging" Alternatives: How do citizens' trust and political contexts affect the success of government behavioral interventions?


Join CLEAR’s Research Associate and Price doctoral candidate, Jochelle Greaves Siew, in conversation with Dr. Paolo Belardinelli (Indiana University) as he discusses his forthcoming book Mapping Behavioral Public Policy: Citizens' Preferences and Trust (July 2024).


This book provides a new perspective on behavioral public policy. The field of behavioral public policy has been dominated by the concept of ‘nudging’ over the last decade. As this book demonstrates, however, ‘nudging’ is one of many behavioral techniques that practitioners and policymakers can utilize to achieve their goals. The book discusses the advantages and disadvantages of these alternative techniques, and demonstrates empirically how the impact of ‘nudging’ and ‘non-nudging’ interventions are often dependent on varying political contexts and the degree of trust that citizens have toward policymakers. In doing so, it addresses the important question of how citizens understand and approve of the use of behavioral techniques by governments. The book will appeal to all those interested in public management, public policy, behavioral psychology, and ‘nudging’.
