WZB Berlin Virtual Workshop: Behavioral and Experimental Insights on COVID-19

Recurring waves of the COVID-19 pandemic have led to different behavioral responses in many domains of our lives. These behavioral responses include economic decisions, protest and political participation, solidarity, and many more. Additionally, the governments have introduced new rules and behavioral interventions. The examples include school closures and interventions to increase vaccinations or compliance with hygiene measures. Many of those measures have been introduced without being based on a solid scientific evidence, they have changed frequently, and they differ by country.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, an increasing number of pandemic-related studies have been conducted. Our understanding of human behavior during the pandemic is improving but the pandemic has also reduced the possibilities to exchange and spread knowledge. The workshop aims to bring together scholars to emphasize the dissemination of ongoing studies on behavioral responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Paper submission closed.
