Design for Government: Humancentric governance through experiments

The report for the Design for Government project published in June 2015 proposed a new, quick-to-implement model for including experiments and behavioural approaches into Finnish policy design. The use of behavioural approaches as part of governmental steering has been shown to make policy more user-orientated, targeted and efficient.

The English introduction presented below includes the chapter 3 of the original report. It has inspired the commitment in current government’s programme to culture of experimentation. Further, it is used to plan the experiments undertaken, such as the basic income experiment in 2017 by the Social Insurance Institution of Finland, and the implementation of the programme for supporting experimental culture in national and local government.
