Lima, Peru

On December 5, IPA, the Behavioral Government Lab (BGL), and CAF-Development Bank of Latin America will co-host an academic and policy conference to explore the potential of the Behavioral Sciences to improve state capacity and public sector management in developing countries. The event hopes to contribute to the dissemination of lessons from behavioral economics among policymakers in Peru and, consequently, motivate collaborations between public institutions and academia, in order to design and provide socially beneficial policy innovations and public goods.

Behavioral Sciences for a More Effective State

The event will be hosted by Universidad del Pacífico in Lima, Peru, and will feature presentations by top academics and government officials, including Paul Gertler (UC Berkeley), Stanislao Maldonado (Universidad del Rosario), Juan Manuel Hernandez-Agramonte (IPA), and Daniel Ortega (CAF, Development Bank of Latin America). The conference expects to bring together government officials, private institutions, NGOs, researchers & universities, and donors & funders with a topical interest in governance, development, public management, and public policies.
