CEP Press Release: Improving National Happiness: Expert insights on the potential of public policy

Following the recent publication of the 2017 World Happiness Report, 28 leading researchers on wellbeing from around the world have expressed their views on the state of knowledge on public policies that can make a real difference to people’s satisfaction with their lives – as well as whether we need more randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to test the wellbeing impact of a variety of policy options. The majority view of the survey of experts is that we now know a lot more than ever before about what public policies increase national wellbeing. But while some experts are enthusiastic about instituting a major programme of trials for ‘what works’ in terms of improving wellbeing, others are less positive, citing issues around ethics, validity and the time it takes to get results.
