Paluck recognized with award by American Academy of Political and Social Science

Princeton Professor Elizabeth Levy Paluck Elected Fellow of American Academy of Political and Social Science for Work on Prejudice and Conflict Reduction

Elizabeth Levy Paluck, a professor at Princeton University, has been named one of eight fellows by the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) this year. She is known for her work on prejudice and conflict reduction as well as the development of social norms in various environments. Paluck holds the title of Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs and is the deputy director of the Kahneman-Treisman Center for Behavioral Science & Public Policy at Princeton.

Marta Tienda, the president of AAPSS and a professor at Princeton, welcomed the new fellows with great enthusiasm. She believes that at a crucial moment in American democracy, the insights provided by social science thought leaders like Paluck are essential for reimagining American world leadership and ensuring economic opportunities for future generations.

Through large-scale field experiments, Paluck tests theoretically driven interventions that target social norms and behavior. Her research focuses on ethnic conflict, political conflict, conflict among young people in schools, and violence against women. This work has been instrumental in identifying more effective ways to reduce prejudice, violence, and conflict in society.

Paluck joined the Princeton faculty in 2009 after completing a fellowship at the Harvard Academy for International Affairs and obtaining her Ph.D. and B.S. in psychology from Yale University
