Workshop Overview

WORKSHOP ON INFORMAL INSTITUTIONS AND INTRACTABLE GLOBAL PROBLEMS

April 16-17, 2012
Purdue University | West Lafayette, Indiana USA

All sessions are at the Dauch Alumni Center (403 West Wood Street West Lafayette, IN 47907-2007) in the Prusiecki Room.
The keynote address on Monday at 3:30 pm is in Fowler Hall.

Join us this spring for an international workshop focused on how more attention to informal institutions, such as social and ethical norms or other "unwritten" rules of behavior, might improve policy responses to global grand challenges. Workshop participants will apply theoretical insights from the latest work on informal institutions in political science, psychology, philosophy, economics, and anthropology, on three "intractable" problems that have confounded policy makers for decades: climate change, food security, and women&rsqo;s human rights. By synthesizing work across disciplines and policy issues, the workshop aims to create new perspectives on old problems, and new theoretical insights on the importance of informal institutions.

All program panels and the keynote address open to the Purdue community.
