Creating impact together.

Our aim is to bring new perspectives to an underexposed field of research and knowledge.

The Marshall Institute will bring together the principal actors in private action for public benefit to share information, data, projects, and practice. We provide a platform for exchange between the key actors in the field, be they investors, foundations, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, or government agencies.

Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work

Tuesday 10 March 2020

18:30 - 20:00, Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE

We are delighted to welcome Professor Robert H Frank in conversation with Stephan Chambers discussing his latest book Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work.  

Social environments profoundly shape our behaviour, sometimes for the better, often for the worse. But our environments are in turn products of our behavior. Under the Influence explains how to unlock the latent power of social context.

Please register here for this event.
