What is the problem?
Inequality threatens social and economic development. Various forms of inequality persist throughout society, including discrimination based on income, sex, age, disability, race, ethnicity and opportunity. Each of these forms of inequality impact the decisions of individuals and shape choices and behaviours in the societies they live in.
What do we do?
Through our interdisciplinary decision science research, we investigate the impact of inequality on decision-making as a means of exploring how to reduce inequalities for individuals and groups. We advise on insights from decision science research and their application to social policy in order to advance diversity, equity and inclusion throughout society.
What are our aims?
At the Radboud Center for Decision Science, we coordinate research 1) to better understand how decision-making is impacted by social inequality and 2) to explore how social policy can be construed in light of decision science research to reduce inequalities.
