Ben's research interests lie at the crossovers between game theory, social choice theory and normative microeconomics. So, for example, he is interested in the formal representation of rights. He recently worked on an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded programme of research - directed by Robert Sugden - on the problem of reconciling Normative Economics with Behavioural Economics. And in other work, he uses non-cooperative, cooperative, and experimental game theory to explore expected and rightful outcomes in situations - such as transnational climate change negotiations - where cooperation induces both surpluses and externalities.
