About the  Center:

Under the Saudi Arabian G20 2020 presidency, G20 Labour and Employment Ministers on 10th of September 2020 have announced the establishment of the Center which was endorsed by all G20 members, who committed to working together by acting as a community of practice in exchanging knowledge and experience of utilizing behavioral insights in Labour market policy through creating G20 Behavioral Insights Knowledge Exchange Network, facilitated by the Riyadh Behavioral Insight Center.  The Center is the first Behavioral Insights center that focuses solely on Labour market. It will facilitate the work of the Network and act as a catalyst that steer to the discussion and activity of the network. 


About the  Network:

The creation of the G20 Behavioral Insights Knowledge Exchange Network will offers an exciting and practical means for us to further develop and encourage collaboration between countries with social partners, international stakeholders including behavioral insights researchers and international organizations by leveraging existing knowledge and expertise in behavioral insights and further developing it to assist labor market policy-makers in addressing the complex and diverse challenges facing our labor markets. The Behavioral Insights Knowledge Exchange Network is chaired by Saudi Arabia and it is supported by Canada as the Co-chair.


The Network will function as a hub of knowledge for labor market-focused behavioral insights applications. In particular, the Network will:

  •  Raise awareness of behavioral insights as an approach for improving the effectiveness of policy-making.
  •  Act as a community of practice for G20 labor and employment policy-makers, facilitating regular exchange of knowledge and experience on the subject of utilizing behavioral insights in labor market policy in order identify priority labor market challenges to help advise where enhanced outcomes may be achieved through applying behavioral insights.
  • When exchanging knowledge, include contextual background information with clear descriptions of the nature of the issue being addressed and/or the problem being tackled. This will enable more accurate assessment of what information, findings and approaches are appropriate for sharing.
  • Provide an online repository where members can compile and share behavioral based interventions, approaches, as well as evaluations of policy-making focused on labor and employment from their countries.
