The Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs program on Global Economics presents “Identification, Polarization, and Their Behavioral Consequences” with Luca Henkel, Postdoctoral Scholar, University of Chicago and University of CEMA.

Polarization is a growing concern affecting societies worldwide. This talk focuses on a particular origin of polarization: the fact that people incorporate opinion-based groups into their identity. The origins and consequences of such identification processes for polarization and behavior more generally are discussed using evidence from the vaccination, climate, and financial contexts.
