Podcasts and academic Interviews

Watch this interview with Prof. David Levi-Faur, Chief Editor of Regulation & Governance, about my recent paper: Regulating for Integration by Behavioral Design. The paper provides new theoretical framework and empirical evidence on how to make the regulation for integration in multicultural societies more acceptable for minorities. The paper also offers broader insights for regulators who face regulatees with ideological objections, and we talk towards the end of the interview about the implications for COVID vaccine take-up.
Listen to this episode of The Hearing podcast (in Hebrew) where I talk about the emerging new field of research I am working on: Empirical Constitutional Law.
