Public Health Law in the light of Behavioural Economics
Summary:
The present dissertation deals with the usefulness and applications of behavioral economics in Public Health Law. Starting from an overview of the various prejudices affecting human rationality that are found specifically in the field of public health, this paper proceeds with an analysis of the scientific method proposed by behavioral economics and an account of a number of cases where this method has been implemented for public health purposes. Thus, this first part of the paper showcases the numerous advantages that justify the introduction of behavioral economics in the legislative process of Public Health Law. The paper, then, focuses on the critique of this new behavioral approach to law, followed by the arguments that the theory of behavioral economics employs in order to defend itself. Through this dialogue, the stakes of the implementation of the proposed model are highlighted, as well as the need for the creation of a solid legal basis for such a behavioral analysis of law and, in particular, of Public Health Law.
