Measuring the Tricky Things Workshop

  12/10/2018 - 13/10/2018

The Centre for Experimental Social Science (CESS) at Nuffield College, Oxford and the Behavioral Science Unit (eMBeD) at the World Bank will host a workshop on Measuring the Tricky Things at Nuffield College on 12-13thOctober 2018.

The workshop will bring together scholars working on state-of-the-art measurement techniques on things that are difficult to measure to share best practices. Speakers will present on studies to elicit attitudes, social norms, cognitive abilities, and behaviors that people prefer to hide, that are prone to social desirability bias, or that people are simply not aware of (e.g., social norms related to domestic violence, stereotypes and out-group biases across hostile groups, and dishonesty).
