Post Hoc Interventions: prospects and problems

5 October 2022 10:00 to 6 October 2022 16:00 conference

How can we combat discrimination based on sexism, racism and other forms of prejudice? At the Pufendorf IAS at Lund University, researchers from different disciplines are investigating methods for addressing prejudiced behavior after it has occurred but before it results in discrimination, through so-called "post hoc interventions".

Welcome to a two-day conference with researchers from the Theme Post Hoc Interventions and invited speakers where we will discuss post hoc interventions from a legal, ethical, epistemological and statistical perspective. Comparisons will also be made between post hoc interventions and existing methods in social psychology and computer science for combatting prejudice.
