Jakob Enlund

I'm a Ph.D Candidate in Economics at the University of Gothenburg.

I am an applied microeconomist. I use quasi-experimental and experimental research designs within primarily political economy, development economics, and behavioral economics.

In my job market paper, I document electoral cycles in troop contributions to UN peacekeeping operations, and show how they hamper international collective action to mitigate conflict. Another paper examines the violent spill-over effects of conflict, focusing on the case of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its effect on hate crimes towards Jews and Muslims in the U.S.

A seperate research agenda lies in between behavioral, experimental and environmental economics. In particular, I'm heading a large-scale randomized control trial evaluating a comprehensive app-based pro-environmental behavioral intervention.
