Behaviour Change

The House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology has launched an inquiry into the use of behaviour change interventions as a means of achieving government policy goals.

The inquiry, to be conducted by Sub-Committee I under the chairmanship of Baroness Neuberger, will investigate, amongst other things, the policy implications of recent developments in research on behaviour change, whether current government behaviour change interventions are evidence-based and subject to appropriate evaluation, and the relationship between government, industry and the voluntary sector in promoting behaviour change. The Sub-Committee will also be considering the social and ethical issues surrounding the use of behaviour change interventions by government.

A second call for evidence inviting written submission on this inquiry was published on 10 December 2010. The deadline for submissions was 21 January 2011.
