Key Research Interests

Enrique’s research is primarily driven by his interest in human behavior. He has run laboratory and field studies in more than 10 countries, including Russia, Iran, South Africa, China, the USA, the United Kingdom and Spain. He has long-term co-authors in Economics and other disciplines, like Political Science or Psychology.

 

Enrique is currently working on three different areas:

 

- The behavioural analysis of institutions (including the political economy of conflict, the role of natural identities and ethnic and linguistic discrimination on economic performance, and the behavioural determinants of terrorism);

- Organisational behaviour (including the behavioural analysis of coordination failure, the effectiveness of sanctions and rewards on tax compliance, and the role of hierarchies and networks in the performance of organisations), and

- The behavioural analysis of markets (including recent work on bounded rationality and price competition, and consumers boycotts).
