Dr Katharina Werner

Dr Katharina Werner is an Assistant Professor at the University of Passau, Germany.

Dr Werner uses lab experiments and lab-in- the-field experiments to study behavioural aspects of conflict resolution, group identities, anti-corruption and ethics.

In one of her recent studies, she ran lab-in- the-field experiments in a post-conflict environment in Indonesia to investigate how different degrees of conflict exposure affect pro-social behaviour and trust towards different groups.

Current projects study the impact of conflict exposure on refugees' propensity to integrate as well as the risk of moral decay in market interaction.
