Frequently Asked Questions

We invite submissions from interested researchers on any topic at the intersection of Behavioural and Development Economics. While we welcome work on already studied topics such as time preference, risk, investment, and saving, we particularly encourage papers on under-studied applications of behavioural economics to development issues.

Examples of possible topics include: preferences, cognition, and productivity under conditions of scarcity; formation of beliefs in low-information environments and their effects on behaviour; intra-household allocation in production and consumption; redistributive preferences and economic outcomes; behaviour in matching processes; culture, norms, and trust.

We welcome work from outside economics as long as it studies some aspect of economic behaviour, broadly construed, with relevance to development economics.
