Princeton Professor Elizabeth Levy Paluck Named AAPSS Fellow for Pioneering Work in Conflict Reduction

Paluck recognized with award by American Academy of Political and Social Science

Elizabeth Levy Paluck, a professor at Princeton University, has been recognized as one of eight fellows by the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) this year. She is known for her research on prejudice and conflict reduction as well as the development of social norms in various environments.

Paluck’s work focuses on ethnic conflict, political conflict, conflict among young people in schools, and violence against women. Through large-scale field experiments, she tests theoretically driven interventions that target social norms and behavior. This work has been instrumental in identifying more effective ways to reduce prejudice, violence, and conflict in society.

Marta Tienda, the president of AAPSS and a professor at Princeton, welcomed the new fellows with great enthusiasm. She believes that at a crucial moment in American democracy, the insights provided by social science thought leaders like Paluck are essential for reimagining American world leadership and ensuring economic opportunities for future generations.

Paluck joined the Princeton faculty in 2009 after completing a fellowship at the Harvard Academy for International Affairs and obtaining her Ph.D. and B.S. in psychology from Yale University. In addition to being named an AAPSS fellow, she has received numerous other awards and honors throughout her career
