La prochaine séance du séminaire commun CES-ENS Cachan et RITM-UPSud aura lieu le jeudi 18 décembre de 14h à 15h30 à Cachan (adresse exacte ci-dessous).
Nous aurons le plaisir de recevoir Emeric Henri ( Sciences Po Paris) qui nous présentera “Legal spillovers in time and space: an experimental approach” (with Roberto Galbiati).
Law enforcement may affect individual behavior directly or through spillovers from past enforcement or from enforcement in different domains. These spillovers in time and space may shape the establishment or the evolution of social norms of cooperation. We conduct a laboratory experiment to study these spillovers in time and space, their persistence and the mechanisms underlying them. We show that being exposed to enforcement in the recent past has a strong positive effect on future cooperation even when law enforcement is removed. This is mostly due to an indirect behavioral spillover effect: facing penalties in the past increases past cooperation which in turn positively affects current behavior. However, for interactions that occur early on, we find a negative effect of past enforcement. We show this effect is due to learning about the distribution of cooperative types in the society. By using a novel experimental setup where players play two games in parallel with different partners, we also show that enforcement spillovers also exist across legal domains.
