Join our panellists as they come together to discuss the new issue of the LSE Public Policy Review, Beveridge 2.0: Wellbeing. This latest LSE Public Policy Review issue discusses the extent to which wellbeing considerations can (and should) inform policy decisions.
These questions are particularly relevant at a time when we start to fully understand the consequences of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic on a range of aspects of people’s lives: from mental health to domestic violence, from economic to educational outcomes. A focus on wellbeing can challenge the processes through which different public policy goals have been prioritized.
