Join us for this fireside chat where Paul Dolan will continue his reflection on ten years of behavioural science at LSE, discussing biases, narratives, happiness, resilience and more.

We will be drawing from research from LSE walls and beyond. We will also be looking to the future, mapping out the most important and exciting areas of study. Those that join us can expect to laugh, learn and lean into behavioural science.
