Conversation with Prof. Yuval Feldman: Challenging State’s Ability to Regulate Human Behavior
Monday, October 16, 2017
12pm - 1pm
Prof. Yuval Feldman is the Kaplan Professor of Legal Research at Bar-Ilan University Law School Israel, where he has taught since 2004. Since 2014, he has been a senior Fellow at the Israeli Democracy Institute where he co-heads a multi-disciplinary team that runs lab and field experiments as well as policy analysis on national level projects, in the areas of meritocracy in the Israeli public sector, discrimination, corruption and judicial decision-making.
He will visit us this fall to discuss how governments can effectively use recent advances in the understanding of human behavior to guide their efforts to modify people’s behavior. Behavioral ethics have completely revolutionized the business and management fields, but have yet to be applied in legal as well as governance research, especially in the context of legal enforcement. The growing recognition that misconduct can be facilitated by structural issues and is not just the product of a few “bad apples” has important implications for the design and fine-tuning of enforcement mechanisms. Prof. Feldman discusses the states' need to modify their regulatory roles and functions based on the understanding that discrimination does not just stem from certain employers who hate minorities, that corruption is not just about greedy individuals, or that trade secrets are not just divulged for mercenary or revenge motives. He argues that the good-people rationale — the idea that ordinary people could engage in all types of wrongdoing without being aware of the full meaning of their behavior — greatly complicates the regulatory challenge of states. This event is hosted by the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium and is open to all students.
