A wellbeing approach to policymaking

  • Democracy and governance
  • Health and wellbeing

How can we measure wellbeing? What causes it, and how can it be improved?

Richard Layard and Jan Emmanuel De Neve present a case for making wellbeing the central goal – for government, for business and for educators.

Drawing from their field-defining publication on the science of wellbeing across the life course, they call for a shift in policymaking to maximise the wellbeing of individuals and to engage citizens to contribute to more resilient, rebalanced and regenerative futures.

Wellbeing: Science and Policy features illustrations provided by visual artist David Shrigley.
