Topical Issues

What current issues are we examining?

Research on Covid 19

The COVID19 pandemic has claimed many lives and caused hardship across the world. Behavioural scientists have a role to play in trying to understand the social and behavioural aspects of the pandemic in an attempt to improve the current situation and learn lessons for the future.

Research on inequality

Behavioural researchers at Warwick have been actively engaged in seeking to understand inequality and injustice in society, whether this is in terms of income, opportunity or education, and to seek out the causes of inequality
