Psychology and Economics of Poverty Convening 2018

Health & Psychology Conference   |  past event  |  May 23 2018

CEGA’s Psychology and Economics of Poverty (PEP) Collaborative hosted its first annual convening on Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018 at UC Berkeley.

Researchers within the disciplines of psychology and economics are each making important strides to advance our understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty. This event brought together select researchers from these disciplines to share advances and build interdisciplinary connections. Researchers made short presentations to share their research, explore areas of overlap across fields and departments, and obtain feedback. This event examined ways to advance both basic science as well as applied research, with topics ranging from challenges in measurement to isolating mechanisms using field experiments. The event alternated between structured presentations and informal time for networking and feedback. The goal of this convening was to jumpstart a strong local research community that can provide support and collaboration around the psychology and economics of poverty.
