External Validity, Generalizability and Replicability of Economic Experiments

The BSE Summer Forum Workshop on External Validity, Generalizability and Replicability of Economic Experiments will take place in Barcelona on June 10, 2022.

We are regularly checking safety regulations related to the COVID-19 pandemic. If an in-person event is not possible, this workshop will be held online.

In the last decades, behavioral and experimental economics have been very successful in showing how economic processes and outcomes are significantly shaped by different aspects of human behavior. These fields, however, are still largely based on findings from experiments conducted in laboratory conditions or with convenience samples of subjects, and there is a growing concern about their external validity and generalizability to real-world contexts. At the same time, we are in the middle of a wide-ranging replication crisis that represents a serious threat to all experimental sciences, with some studies estimating the replicability of published research at less than 50%. This workshop will accept high-quality papers related in any way to the external validity, generalizability or replicability of experimental research.
