Enacting change in long-run behavior and attitudes


Recent years have seen an increased interest in the use of behavioral nudges and social policy to address a diverse set of issues including tax evasion, charitable giving, environmental responsibility and corruption. This has raised the question of whether, and how, such policy measures can achieve changes in long-term behavior and people’s attitudes. In this workshop, we aim to bring together researchers working on this topic, directly or indirectly, across a broad range of subfields including economic history, behavioral, and development economics, among others.
