Shadows of Doubt: Brendan O’Flaherty and Rajiv Sethi

Economist examines the role stereotypes play in the the justice system. 

Crimes and punishments take place under pressure and often with uncertainty. Offenders, victims, police, judges, and jurors make high-stakes decisions with limited information, under severe time pressure. With compelling stories and extensive data on how people behave in the heat of the moment, Shadows of Doubt: Stereotypes, Crime, and the Pursuit of Justice reveals the extent to which we rely on stereotypes as shortcuts in our decision making.

The Program Room opens at 6 PM.
