Abstract: This research project, funded by the OECD, will analyse the application of behavioural economics by governments and regulatory agencies in regulatory policy. The paper will provide an international comparative analysis of institutional structures and methodologies, including case study examples of using behavioural economics in regulatory policy.
The ESRI works towards a national vision of ‘Informed policy for a better Ireland’. This means producing high-quality analysis to provide robust evidence for policymaking, with the goals of research excellence and policy impact.
The ESRI produces research that contributes to understanding economic and social change in the new international context and that informs public policymaking and civil society in Ireland.
