The Carnegie UK Trust launched Kindness, emotions and human relationships: The blind spot in public policy, a report written by Carnegie Fellow, Julia Unwin CBE, and informed by a series of roundtables and events across the UK in November 2018.
This report brings together all that we have learnt over the last two years. It acknowledges the strong arguments against kindness, but argues that the great public policy challenges of our time demand an approach that is more centred on human relationships. It also emphasises that this is an issue of urgency and import: with technology and artificial intelligence transforming our world at speed, it is imperative that we invest equally in our emotional intelligence.
The report also includes insights from the first ever quantitative survey on kindness. The full data set was published separately on World Kindness day, Tuesday 13 November 2018.
