Behavioural Economics and Public Policy

Program Lead: Professor Uwe Dulleck   |   Deputy Program Lead: Dr Stephen Whyte

This program applies Behavioural Economics across all areas of Public Policy. Its focus is on influencing public policy, co-developing policy interventions and evaluating their effectiveness. Research Leader Uwe Dulleck is a member of the academic advisory panel of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s BETA (behavioural economics team of Australia) unit. The program group members have applied Behavioural Economics to provide insights into education, financial decision making and financial regulation. This program will also coordinate the ongoing collaboration with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to organise the Nudgeathon, a Hackathon-esque competition for students in behavioural economics and other behavioural disciplines.
