In times of crisis, political decision-makers often receive inconsistent information. And sometimes, the information they receive is often not specifically developed for the current crisis. All too often, the same mistakes are made again and again – not because of a lack of information, or untruths, but just because of the wrong kind of information.
In a multi-disciplinary enquiry, the Bennett Institute for Public Policy brought together academics, lawyers, regulators, civil servants and business owners in one workshop to understand why we consistently don’t learn our lesson. Five areas were covered during the workshop: foundational structures, behavioural elements, relational connections, contextual narratives, and the role of leadership.
