Research at the intersection of psychology and economics is shedding light
on the ways in which resource scarcity, volatility and other dimensions of
poverty impact economic decision-making, cognition, health and
well-being. On March 10 and 11th, 2021, CEGA's third annual Psychology and
Economics of Poverty (PEP) Convening will showcase exciting new work in
this space, along with implications for social and economic development. As
in past years, the convening will bring together psychologists and
economists to share new insights, and grow and strengthen our lively
inter-disciplinary community through research presentations and discussion.

*Abhijit Banerjee*, 2019 co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics and
Ford Foundation International Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, will deliver the keynote address on Day 2 of the
conference (Thurs, March 11th).

*Our call for papers is now open until January 31, 2021.* We encourage
research submissions in both psychology and economics, relevant to the
psychology of poverty. Interested speakers should submit a 100-300 word
summary, along with either an extended abstract or paper draft. Suggested
topics include:
- How poverty impacts cognitive load, decision-making, social cognition,
health (including mental health), aspirations, and/or economic outcomes
- The psychological consequences of resource instability or volatility
- Belief formation, the relevance of belief-based utility, affective
adaptations to poverty, and the role of the "psychological immune system"
- The influence of cultural context and social norms on outcomes related to
the above topics

*Please follow the link above to submit a paper and/or register to attend. *We
encourage attendance by interested faculty, PhD students, researchers,
implementing partners, and policymakers. Selected speakers will be notified
by February 15, after which we will share a detailed agenda via email and
on our event web page. In the meantime, you can reference the agenda and
slides from our 2019 PEP Convening at
