Creating people-centered behavioral public policy with Elizabeth Linos

The Decision Corner

In this episode, Brooke speaks with Elizabeth Linos, Michelle Schwartz Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School at UC Berkeley. Drawing from her many years’ experience at the intersection of behavioral science and public policy, Elizabeth shares her insights around how the field has developed and what the future holds for behavioral researchers and policymakers interested in changing human behavior for social purposes. Some of the things discussed include: - How low-cost or light-touch nudges sparked an interest in behavioral science amongst policymakers in the early days, and why we need to think further down the funnel to achieve the exact outcomes we desire. - Instances where behavioral science can make a real impact, as well as times we need to be ‘real’ about how much it can really affect policy outcomes. - Why the real challenge for behavioral scientists and practitioners is in persuading policymakers to adopt a holistic, experimentation approach to behavioral challenges, as opposed to ‘quick-win’ solutions. - The case for a people-centered approach to behavioral policy design and why it’s important that researchers pay special attention to the experiences of frontline workers and not just the raw data. - Immediate steps that policymakers and behavioral scientists can take in pursuing meaningful projects that address public policy challenges.

Using behavioral insights to help recruit diverse police candidates: An interview with Elizabeth Linos, University of California, Berkeley – Episode #170

Gov Innovator podcast

Attracting a police force from diverse backgrounds is one important step in ensuring that citizens are well served by their police departments and have trust in the police. But what steps can police departments take that are effective in achieving that goal? The Behavioral Insights Team, in conjunction with the What Works Cities Initiative, set out to work with more than 20 police departments to build credible evidence on that topic, including running randomized trials to test out different recruiting messages and other steps. The results are described is the report Behavioral Insights for Building the Police Force of Tomorrow. To learn more, we are joined by Dr. Elizabeth Linos (@ElizabethLinos) who was one of the authors of the report. She is a professor of public policy at University of California, Berkeley, and is the former vice president and head of research and evaluation at the Behavioral Insights Team in North America. The post Using behavioral insights to help recruit diverse police candidates: An interview with Elizabeth Linos, University of California, Berkeley – Episode #170 appeared first on Gov Innovator podcast.
