2021-05-28: A project co-authored by Jordi Brandts has been selected in La Caixa's call for experimental research in the social sciences
The "social observatory" of La Caixa Support has published an article co-authored by Jordi Brandts (IAE-CSIC and BSE) that studies the question whether providing scientific evidence helps to dispel widespread unfounded beliefs held by the general public. Specifically, the study focuses on rent capping whose support is very widespread because it is thought that it will enable more people to gain access to housing. However, most academic studies show that the measure does not have the desired impact. Using an experiment, the authors show that providing the public with written scientific arguments about the real effects of the measure leads to a remarkable reduction in the belief.

2021-03-26: An international research team co-led by Hannes Mueller uses machine learning to obtain alerts of violent political conflicts
Preventing the outbreak and escalation of armed conflicts has become a central objective of international organizations. An international research team led by Hannes Mueller (IAE-CSIC and BSE) and Christopher Rauh (University of Cambridge) has launched the website https://conflictforecast.org/ to offer forecasts of the risk of armed conflict in countries around the world. The forecast method, which uses machine learning techniques, is based on a database of more than 5 million newspaper articles which are updated continuously and aims to provide policy-makers with some early warning before existing tensions escalate into armed conflict. Forecasts are updated regularly and can be downloaded easily.
