*UPDATED* PEPES Seminar: Daniel CHEN (Toulouse School of Economics)

Daniel CHEN is a Professor at both the Toulouse School of Economics and the Université de Toulouse's Faculty of Law, as well as at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse. He was also a Senior Research Associate, Wertheim Fellow at the Harvard Law School, Labor and Worklife Program.

His main research field is law and economics. An open debate in law and economics–and legal theory more generally–is why people obey the law–is it because the law incentivizes, as in a classical economics or law and economics view, or because the law has legitimacy and simply tells individuals what is the right thing to do.   Much of his research seeks to understand how people form normative commitments, how they respond to these normative commitments, and what are these normative commitments using both theory and data.

Daniel CHEN will present a paper, joint with Elliott ASH and Suresh NAIDU, at the next PEPES Seminar on the theme:

Ideas Have Consequences: The Impact of Law and Economics on American Justice (link to paper, PDF)
