The workshop will bring together internationally leading and junior academics from the fields of Political Economy, Organisational Economics and Development Economics working on questions relating to identity, norms, motivation, belief formation and their effect on the functioning of institutions and organisations. Confirmed speakers include:

Professor Sonia Bhalotra

University of Essex

Professor Lakshmi Iyer

University of Notre Dame

Professor Dilip Mookherjee

Boston University

Research presented at the workshop will include work that touches upon issues of direct policy relevance today, such as the effective functioning of political institutions in developed and developing countries, motivating workers in the public sector, changing cultural practices that entrench social inequality or economic inefficiency.

A call for papers for the workshop is now open. Submissions from early career researchers are especially welcome. The closing date for submissions is March 15, 2019.
