Vincent Hendricks will present at the 6th OECD World Forum

Professor Vincent F. Hendricks will present at paper on 'Providing trusted evidence in a post-truth world' at the 6th OECD World Forum: the Future on Well-Being focusing on Statistics, Knowledge and Policy. 

For well over a decade, the OECD World Forums on Statistics, Knowledge and Policy have been pushing forward the boundaries of well-being measurement and policy. By bringing together thousands of leaders, experts and practitioners from all sectors of society, the Forums have contributed to an ongoing paradigm shift that emphasises people’s well-being and inclusive growth as the ultimate focus for policies and collective action.

The 6th OECD World Forum, organised in collaboration with Statistics Korea, aims to look ahead to the Future of Well-being, and to ask what are the trends that will re-shape people’s lives in the decades to come. Particular emphasis will be given to three important trends – the digital transformation, the changing role of governance, and the emergence of the private sector as an important actor for ensuring sustainable and inclusive well-being – as well as to looking at the interplay of these three factors.
