Professor Peter John (UCL) will be presenting his new book ‘Field Experiments in Political Science and Public Policy’.

Randomised Control Trials, behavioural insights and ‘nudge’ style policy interventions have become popular in government, development policy, academia and business. There is, however, a lack of information and evidence on the challenges of setting up and implementing these complex social interventions and experimental evaluations particularly documenting when things go wrong and why. This seminar series brings together leading academics and policy makers to provide case studies and field stories of how to design and implement social policy experiments.
