9th International Microinsurance Conference 2013
CEAR is responsible for anchoring the Academic Track within the conference at large as well as running a Pre-Conference on Scientific Evaluation Methodology just prior to the conference. The purpose of the pre-conference:
The fields of behavioral economics and experimental economics have seen dramatic changes over the past several years, with increasing interest from within academe and the professional community. The purpose of this session will be to review recent advances in experimental methodologies for evaluating the demand for insurance and risk management, as well as the welfare evaluation of microinsurance products. The pre-conference will include participation in pedagogic experiments designed to demonstrate some of the themes, with a particular emphasis on the demand for index insurance. Participants will therefore get a “hands on” experience in what these experiments involve, as well as a discussion covering the design and analysis of the experiment they were involved in.
The instructors for the pre-conference were Georgia State University Professors Glenn Harrison and J. Todd Swarthout. Below you can find recordings and their slide deck of their presentations.
