Design for Better Policy and Regulation

In our second track of the morning, we hear from speakers about how to apply the design process to crafting rules, policies, and laws.

We begin with the hypothesis that design can make policy and regulation that are more flexible, responsive, and beneficial to the public.

We need policy systems that can respond to the changes and needs of the 21st century economy. There’s ever-growing amounts of regulation, especially in response to the complexities of technology, disruption, and cross-border initiatives.

How can the government and private actors develop regulatory systems that work better? Can we take an experimental, user-centered, and exploratory approach to proposing policy, seeing what works, and then refining and scaling it?
