Behavioral Development Economics is one of six online courses of the CEBEX Summer School on Behavioral Sciences 2020 which is held from 20 to 30 July.

Development economics inquires into why some countries prosper, and others not. Experimental findings suggest that cultural differences explain a lot of variance in economic behavior. The acknowledgement that psychological factors may affect a country's prosperity allows for more efficient policymaking, which may result in less poverty.

Topics: Introduction to behavioural development economics; Social preferences, culture and development; Psychology of poverty; Labour; Firms; Research methodology; Randomized controlled trials; Intervention; Nudges and choice architecture

If completed successfully, the course is awarded by 4 ECTS credits.
