Beveridge 2.0 Themes

Well-being

Well-being

Recent years have seen a growing interest in wellbeing as a goal of public policy. This has led to significant advances in our understanding of the measurement of subjective wellbeing and its determinants. At the same time, wellbeing remains a contested concept, one that can be interpreted and used differently, with distinctive methodological and normative challenges. This has consequences for how wellbeing is (or can be) incorporated into policy decisions. The symposium invites scholars from across the School to explore a range of different disciplinary approaches to wellbeing, illuminate potential tensions as well as commonalities, and to reflect on their implications for policy.
