Live on Verfassungsblog tonight: Cass Sunstein explains the Ethic of Nudging

Our two day conference on Choice Architecture in Democracies starts tonight with a key note lecture by one of the most prominent protagonists of the ongoing nudging debate, Harvard Law School constitutionalist Cass Sunstein.

Sunstein co-authored in 2008 the seminal book „NudgeImproving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness“ (with economist Richard Thaler) and served as President Obama’s „regulation czar“ during the first term of his administration.

Tomorrow and on Wednesday experts and scholars will discuss the merits, dangers and ramifications of nudging at an international conference at the Humboldt University of Berlin. The program can be found here.

Both the lecture and the conference will be streamed live here. Comments and tweets (hashtag: #nudge15) are warmly encouraged! A choice of the online comments will be introduced into the discussion.

We are very much looking forward to a lively and fruitful discussion!

On behalf of my fellow conveners Christoph Möllers, Gerhard Wagner and Alexandra Kemmerer, and with a grateful nod to our generous supporter Vodafone Stiftung Deutschland,

Maximilian Steinbeis

Editor Verfassungsblog
