Behavioural Science for Diplomacy and Peacebuilding

While UN peacemakers working in conflict contexts are intuitively applying techniques from psychology and behavioural economics in their mediation and preventive diplomacy engagements, DPPA’s Innovation Cell is exploring a more systematic approach to evidence-based psychological and behavioural techniques. This panel explores the application of Behavioural Science to international affairs, including issues such as inter-group relations and conflict, prejudice and conflict reduction, affective empathy and public preferences, irrational politics and other themes relevant to improve multilateral diplomacy and the UN’s peace efforts.
