Dr Iain Law was interviewed by Mathieu Ricard on BBC WM radio on Thursday 1st November, about happiness, and whether meditation can make us happier. Philosophers have studied happiness for centuries but in recent times neurologists, psychologists and economists have joined them.  Even the government now tries to measure the nation’s happiness four times a year.  Iain will discuss these issues and talk about the work of the Health & Happiness research cluster at the University of Birmingham.
