Morality and public policy have long had a complicated, tense relationship—the product, at least in part, of growing secularism and unclear lines between the state and questions of morality. This book looks at that tension and explores ways that both scholars and practitioners can enhance the capability of public policy to understand moral questions, respond flexibly and quickly to changes in social mores, and take account of different cultural contexts that could lead to unexpected responses to particular policies. It is the best look we’ve had yet at the moral core of public policy—what it is and what it could be.

Her engaging book combines a subtle and balanced analysis with a convincing case that policy makers can and should do morality better.” (Matthew Taylor, CEO, Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, UK)
“An original analysis of the connections between moral sphere and public policy. Henricson has produced a book of major significance to our understanding of how governments should do morality.” (Kimmo Jokinen, University of Jyväskylä, Finland)
