Elizabeth Levy Paluck Awarded David Riesman Fellowship for Remarkable Work in Prejudice Reduction and Conflict Resolution

Elizabeth Levy Paluck, a distinguished professor at Princeton University, has been selected as one of eight fellows by the American Academy of Political and Social Science for her remarkable work in prejudice reduction and conflict resolution. Paluck, who received a prestigious MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, is widely recognized for her research in developing social norms to address conflicts in various settings, including post-conflict regions and high schools.

As the recipient of the 2024 David Riesman Fellowship, Paluck will continue to lead large-scale field experiments that test interventions targeting social norms and behavior. Her research focuses on ethnic conflict, political conflict, conflicts among young people in schools, and violence against women. Through her research efforts, she has made significant advancements in reducing prejudice, violence, and conflict.

President Marta Tienda of the AAPSS expressed excitement about welcoming a new group of accomplished fellows. She emphasized the importance of social science leaders in shaping American world leadership and creating economic opportunities for future generations. Tienda also recognized Paluck’s contributions to the field as a fellow at Princeton since 2009.

Paluck holds a Ph.D. and B.S. in psychology from Yale University and completed a fellowship at the Harvard Academy for International Affairs before joining Princeton University. Her work has earned numerous accolades, including two Robert B. Cialdini Awards for field research, an Early Career Award from the American Psychological Association, an honorary degree from Claremont Graduate University
