Ian Bache on the Well-being Agenda in Politics

Ian Bache discusses the rise of the well-being agenda in politics, in particular in the UK and EU.  He discusses how we can analyse this rise with reference to three conceptual streams: (a) problems, (b) policies, and (c) politics.  He ends by applying this analysis in discussing what the future holds for the well-being agenda.  You can view the two papers discussed in the video here:
