Explaining individual political behaviour is one of the big challenges in social sciences. Pedro Robalo uses the tools of experimental economics, game theory and decision theory to shed light on political choices. Relaxing the neoclassical assumptions of self-interested preferences and full rationality, Robalo investigates whether group identity and altruism matter for political participation, what the role of reciprocity and normative appeals in the response to political mobilisation are, and whether the costs of information influence the way the latter is incorporated in (political) decision-making.
