In Spring 2015 the British Academy's series of debates held across the UK looked at well-being, an issue which gained significant political traction over recent years. Over the course of three public debates in Salford, Cardiff and London, the British Academy Debates explored the reasons behind the rise of well-being on the political agenda, the struggles of measuring it, and the challenges of building public policy to promote it.
