Welfare and Behaviour

We combine insights from psychology and economics to try to understand and improve the lives of poor people, mainly working with social enterprises and NGOs, such as Give Directly in Kenya. Ongoing and recently completed work in this area includes work on intrahousehold bargaining in developing countries, and a series of large programmes to improve the effectiveness of NGO cash transfer interventions by boosting aspirations of the poor by exposing recipients to videos of successful role models in Kenya and Ethiopia.
