A values analysis of attitudes towards the use of law to prevent obesity: How might these values inform public health law theory and practice?

Kruck, Lisa-Anne James (2015) A values analysis of attitudes towards the use of law to prevent obesity: How might these values inform public health law theory and practice? PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis asks whether values, like government duty, individual responsibility, community and social justice, influence the way that scholars and research participants think about the use of law to prevent obesity. It explores the way participants speak about values when expressing their support for or against a variety of government regulatory interventions, including taxation, food labelling reforms and advertising restrictions. This research contributes to our understanding of theories of public health law and public health ethics. The qualitative findings also have implications for policy development, in advocating for a variety of government interventions to prevent obesity.

Impact and interest:
