Why do we fail to take joint global action?

Global action

Our directors Dr. Manuel Schubert and Dr. Julia Stauf give a workshop on Global Cooperation at the Asbar World Forum on 05/11/2019.

Time to rethink our behavior

Climate change, waste disposal or forced migration – most of today’s global challenges have the same root-cause: they result from a trade-off between collective and individual goals. During the workshop, the audience will engage in choice experiments to see how individual incentives are in stark contrast to socially desired outcomes.

How can we use these insights and apply them to joint global actions? Can we develop mechanisms to effectively cope with the underprovision of global public goods? The workshop will address these and related questions from a Behavioral Economics standpoint.
