    Using Contact to Improve the Relationship between the Police and the Youth

    Abstract :
    "This study develops a model of water extraction with endogenous social norms. Many users are connected by a unique shared resource that can become scarce in case of over-exploitation. Preferences of individuals are guided by their extraction values and their taste for conformity to social norms which provide incentives to follow others. As the main result of this study, the uniqueness of the Nash equilibrium is established under a sufficient condition. Afterward, some comparative statics analysis shows the effects of change in individual heterogeneous parameters, conformism, and density of the network on the global quantity extracted. Welfare and social optimum properties are established to avoid the tragedy of the commons and sub-optimal consumptions of water. Lastly, this theoretical framework is completed by extensions to highlight levers of water preservation, including the calibration of social norm incentives."

    Empowerment of social norms on water consumption

    Abstract :
    "The relationship between the police and part of the population in France is tense. I use a lab-in-the-field experiment in two high-schools in France to investigate the effect of a brief and controlled discussion between police officers and students on trust. I find a positive effect of contact on trust at the individual level - corresponding to an increase of approximately 0.4 standard deviation, however the effect does not translate to the police in general. A theoretical model of belief formation can shed light on why a single contact could not be sufficient due to prior - negative - interactions."
