Behavioral Public Policy
Behavioral sciences encompass aspects of many disciplines such as economics, psychology, sociology, political science, anthropology, and those aspects of biology that deal with human behavior to study the nature of information processing, judgment and decision making.
In relation to public policy, it concerns the efforts of policy makers to take account of natural and normative psychological and behavioral processes in the analysis of consumer behavior, media psychology, social organization, operations research, etc.
