Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Public policy at Princeton University has flourished with the involvement of psychology research. This chapter illustrates connections by applying psychology research to public policy. As an example, social cognition insights can inform policy in the domain of prejudice and discrimination. Levels of prejudice show that individuals cannot monitor some of their own responses, so organizations have to safeguard diversity, equity, and inclusion.
