Organized by CIRANO, the John Deutsch Institute and the Luc Beauregard Centre of Excellence in Communications Research
This is the third Workshop on the Economics of Strategic Communication and Persuasion. When there is a divergence between information and decision-making power in social and economic environments, the informed party may, through a variety of channels and methods, convey information to the uninformed party, so as to influence the latter’s decision. It is important to study the limits and potentials of communication and persuasion, as well as ways to enhance them so as to improve information transmission and decision-making. There are a number of academic disciplines that analyze these questions, economics among them. This year’s program is multidisciplinary and includes both theory and applications. A special focus is on the exploration of applications to the communication in organizations and its implications for governance.
