  1. Handbook of Behavioural Change and Public Policy

    Handbook of Behavioural Change and Public Policy

    Edited by Holger Straßheim, Silke Beck
    Behavioural change has become a core issue of public policy. Behavioural instruments such as ‘nudging’ apply insights from behavioural economics and behavioural sciences, psychology and neurosciences across a broad range of policy areas. Behavioural insights teams and networks facilitate the global spread of behavioural public policies. Despite an ever-growing amount of literature, research has remained fragmented. This comprehensive Handbook unites interdisciplinary scholarship, with contributions critically assessing the state and direction of behavioural public policies, their normative implications and political consequences.

    Handbook on Science and Public Policy

    Edited by Dagmar Simon, Stefan Kuhlmann, Julia Stamm, Weert Canzler

In short, this book deals with science as a policy-triggered project as well as public policy as a science-driven venture. Learn More

    Research Handbook on Street-Level Bureaucracy

    Edited by Peter Hupe
    When the objectives of public policy programmes have been formulated and decided upon, implementation seems just a matter of following instructions. However, it is underway to the realization of those objectives that public policies get their final substance and form. Crucial is what happens in and around the encounter between public officials and individual citizens at the street level of government bureaucracy. This Research Handbook addresses the state of the art while providing a systematic exploration of the theoretical and methodological issues apparent in the study of street-level bureaucracy and how to deal with them.
