Busara Center for Behavioral Economics

We are committed to rigorous behavioral science and building the voice of the Global South.

Who we work with

We make behaviorally-informed solutions work for the people they are supposed to help. We do this by being a partner to many different types of organizations, who work in a vast range of sectors and contexts.

Academics and Researchers

We are focused on innovation, and are the ideal home for global institutional and research collaborations. Having completed hundreds of lab, field, and online experiments across the world gives us the experience to tackle any research, big or small.

OUR APPROACH

The goal of each project is to help partners use behavioral science with a fresh emphasis on rooting research and application in the contexts in which they work. Together, we develop a menu of services that can help organizations identify and address behavioral obstacles in a human-centered manner.

Each menu is specific to the challenge, but usually entails a review of existing literature and scholarship (from behavioral science and adjoining fields), mixed-methods research to understand the context, people and challenges (drawing on quantitative and qualitative social sciences such as economics, anthropology, history, sociology, and political science), and a design element that co-creates solutions with humans firmly placed at the center of our thinking.

Then, we help to validate, launch, evaluate, and iterate these solutions. Our aim is to continuously adapt to work better, and achieve lasting change.

Finally, we use all projects as opportunities for mutual learning, capacity building, and sharing successes and failures with the wider ecosystem. Our hope is that our partners adapt our approach and make it their own, with and, eventually, without us.
