Behavioral Science and Policy Journal "Spotlight on Ethics"

The newest issue of Behavioral Science and Policy features a “spotlight on ethics” with three review articles on how behavioral insights can guide interventions meant to promote ethical behavior. The three pieces include: “Treating ethics as a design problem,” by ES collab Nicholas Epley alongside David Tannenbaum, “Using behavioral ethics to curb corruption,” by friend of ES Yuval Feldman and an essay on “Regulating for ethical culture,” by ES collab Linda Trevino, co-founder Jonathan Haidt and Executive Director Azish Filabi.
