Update: Canceling 2021 RSF Behavioral Camp, resuming in 2022

In March 2020, we announced that (because of you know what) we would have to cancel the 2020 Russell Sage Summer Institute in Behavioral Economics, which until now had been held every two years since 1994. We had planned to hold a replacement camp in for this coming summer, either live or on-line. Despite the more promising outlook for the coming months, with further deliberation we have now made the difficult decision to cancel the institute for this summer as well. We plan intend to resume the camp again in the summer of 2022, with the usual (live) two-week format. We are exploring a way to hold an online lecture series for this coming summer, which would involve general access by all interested without any application process.

In this space and elsewhere, we will announce any such plans for the lecture series in Summer 2021 this Spring, and announce the schedule and application procedures for the 2022 Summer Camp in January 2022. For interested students, schedules of the seven most recent summer institutes can be found at Summer Institute in Behavioral Economics http://scholar.harvard.edu/laibson/node/31619. The Summer Institute is an initiative of the Russell Sage Foundation; for more information about RSF’s Behavioral Economics program, see: http://www.russellsage.org/research/behavioral-economics.
