Compulsion, persuasion and behavioural change: what now for the cotton bud?

Sarah Hendry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper, the author presents some of the findings of a multi-disciplinary research project on the management of 'domestic sanitary waste'. Current methods for disposal of these wastes cause environmental problems, but achieving change requires individuals to adopt new habits. The problem is analysed in the context of theories of sustainable development. The paper then examines ways in which law can be utilised by policymakers to achieve the necessary behavioural change.
