Workshop: Field Experiments with Legislators

Together with colleagues from Durham University, King’s College London, the University of Nottingham & the University of Zurich I will be hosting a 2-day workshop (06.09. & 07.09.2017; @Department of Political Science room:tba) on the design and implementation of field experiments with legislators:


Focussing on the design of our own field experiment in the UK, we will discuss some key challenges of field experimental studies with legislators:

  • Recruitment (letter senders)
  • Treatment strength & assignment
  • Organization challenges
  • Conducting pre-test & what to learn from them
  • European-wide network on field experiments

If you would like to join us, please fill in the following doodle to ease-up organization:



  • basic knowledge of statistics
  • knowledge of causal inference & potential outcomes framework
  • interest in field experimental work
