Center for Decision Research
  • CDR
  • Conferences


The Center for Decision Research periodically hosts conferences featuring research on special topics in decision research of timely import.

For example, in 2009 the CDR hosted Capitalism without Poverty, a symposium to facilitate a dialogue and exchange of ideas among experts across multiple disciplines to promote innovative, cutting-edge thinking about effective ways to alleviate poverty.

In 2008, the CDR hosted Using Human Nature to Improve Human Life, a preconference to examine how basic knowledge about human nature (fundamental motives, habits, biases, limitations, etc.) can be used to improve individual and social welfare.

Welcome to the Center for Decision Research

The Center for Decision Research is devoted to the study of how individuals form judgments and make decisions. Researchers at the center examine the processes by which intuition, reasoning, and social interaction produce beliefs, judgments, and choices. Understanding how and why people make decisions has important applications in a range of contexts, including management, marketing, finance, and public policy.
