How to reduce crime by influencing people

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


Although Thaler and Sunstein’s (2008) ‘Nudge’ approach is arguably one of the most widely known examples of how to influence human decision-making, many lesser-known ways of influencing the decision making of others, are yet to be so widely adopted by those in policing and crime prevention. To develop a wider ‘psychology of influence’, additional ways of influencing human decision making and behaviour, including ‘Locus of Control’, ‘Affordance’ and ‘Co-action’ will be presented, with suggestions made for where future research might wish to focus and how and where policing and crime prevention might benefit most from their employment.
