  •     ISBN 1834‐9854  Parliament of Australia Department of Parliamentary Services   RESEARCH PAPER NO. 8, 2010-11  15 December 2010 Paternalism in social policy—when is it justifiable?  Matthew Thomas and Luke Buckmaster  Social Policy Section  Executive summary  • Governments are increasingly called upon to introduce paternalist policies—that is, policies that  restrict the choices of individual citizens in their own interests and without their consent.  • Paternalist policies are often controversial, not least because they infringe a key principle of  liberal societies; namely, that citizens are best placed to know their own interests.  • While paternalist policies are often contentious, they are nevertheless ubiquitous. This suggests  that the main issue is not whether or not paternalism itself is justifiable, but rather the  conditions under which particular paternalist policies may be said to be justifiable.  • This paper argues that paternalist policies may be considered justifiable under circumstances  where high stakes decisions are involved, the decisions being made by individuals are  irreversible and it is possible to identify failures in people’s reasoning. It is further argued that if  paternalist interventions are able to be justified in terms of people’s own values and  preferences, then this adds weight to their acceptability given that they do not undermine  people’s autonomy.  • Relatively little scholarly attention has been devoted to the questions of what particular forms of  paternalism may be deemed to be appropriate. This paper suggests that the principles of  discrimination, proportionality, accountability and efficacy provide a framework with which to  consider the appropriateness or otherwise of various forms of paternalist intervention.    Contents  Introduction ............................................................................................................................................. 1  Paternalism defined ................................................................................................................................. 2  Variants of paternalism ...................................................................................................................... 4  The problem of paternalism .................................................................................................................... 7    Possible grounds for paternalist public policy ....................................................................................... 10  Relevant preferences ........................................................................................................................ 11  Settled preferences—or, the current and future self ....................................................................... 12  Preferred preferences....................................................................................................................... 14
