How should we evaluate governmental policy in light of individual well-being? The Oxford Handbook of Well-Being and Public Policy will provide a comprehensive treatment of this large and important question. The Handbook is authored by an interdisciplinary and international group of economists, philosophers, psychologists and law professors. At the Duke conference, authors in Part I and II of the Handbook will present first drafts of their chapters. This conference is open to faculty and graduate or professional students at Duke or other universities. Further conference information can be found at http://law.duke.edu/laweconomicsandpublicpolicy/conferences/wellbeing/ Space is limited. Please contact Victoria Zellefrow (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in registering.
