This Webinar took place on April 14, 2020. You may find a recording and a writeup of key takeways here.


With social distancing and shelter-in-place mandates in effect worldwide, the COVID-19 pandemic is necessitating large-scale behavior change and taking a significant psychological toll.

How can we use insights from the behavioral and social sciences to align human behavior with the recommendations of epidemiologists and public health experts, and guide decision-making?  Northwestern University professor of political science Dr. Jamie Druckman and University of Cambridge social psychology professor, Dr. Sander van der Linden will address these questions and more, drawing on key insights from a just-released report they coauthored with more than two dozen social scientists from universities around the world.

This webinar will be available through WebEx at this LINK.  Please use the following passcode when accessing: 1234. The talk will begin at 12 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, April 14.

This is part of the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs’ Confronting COVID-19: Global Implications and Futures webinar series.
