Behavioural sciences provide a better understanding of human decision-making. Increasingly, governments around the world are keen to rely on these insights for reshaping public interventions in a wide range of policy areas such as energy, health, financial services and data protection.

When policy-making meets behavioural sciences, effective, low-cost and choice preserving regulations can emerge in the form of default rules, smart disclosure and simplification requirements.

While behaviourally-informed regulation has a huge potential, it also attracts legitimacy and practicability concerns. Nudging and the Law explores the legal implications of the emergent phenomenon of behavioural regulation by focusing on the challenges and opportunities it may offer to EU policy-making and beyond.
