Kahneman-Treisman Center for Behavioral Science & Public Policy
Established with an anonymous gift in 2015, the Kahneman-Treisman Center for Behavioral Science & Public Policy, housed in the Woodrow Wilson School, honors the legacy of Daniel Kahneman and Anne Treisman and leverages the combined strengths of the Princeton University faculty across a range of disciplines. The Center is the intellectual hub that supports and organizes new research projects, plans lecture series and conferences, disseminates research results, and connects Princeton researchers and students with policy makers and scholars from other institutions.

Changing the dominant narratives surrounding economically vulnerable populations and dispelling myths about poverty and economic hardship in America is a vital step in arriving at more effective policies to increase mobility from poverty. The Center, with the Gates Foundation, will convene leading behavioral researchers on this topic.
