Session 2B – Netherlands Scientific Council: Why knowing what to do is not enough – Two years later

Discussion Panel
Why knowing what to do is not enough – Two years later

Two years ago, the Netherlands Scientific Council published an advisory report titled ‘Knowing is not the same as doing’. Core message of this report was that politicians and policy makers should have more realistic assumptions about the non-cognitive capacities of people. A realistic government understands knowledge alone is not enough for self-reliance and that ‘normal’ people are not always vigilant and well organized.

The Dutch government adopted the core recommendation of the report and agreed to start with ‘capacity to act test’ for new policies and regulations.In this panel we will discuss what has (and has not) changed since publication of the report.
