Behavioral Ethics Lab

 

BeLab is part of the Philosophy, Politics and Economics Program and reflects its multidisciplinary spirit. We study moral behavior in all its complexity, so that our research crosses the boundaries of several disciplines. Our group includes psychologists, behavioral economists, game theorists, biologists, and moral and political philosophers. At BeLab we do laboratory experiments, but we also go to the field, and we theorize about what we find empirically, using analytical models as well as simulations.

Cristina Bicchieri, Professor of Philosophy and Psychology, an expert on social norms and behavioral ethics, is the head of BeLab. Some areas of special interest at BeLab are social norms, moral heuristics and intuitions, biases, resource division, mutualism, corruption, measures of autonomy and their relation to social change.

Many working papers from the BeLab are available through the RePEc worldwide repository here: https://ideas.repec.org/s/ppc/wpaper.html
