How does a crisis affect people’s behavior? One crisis follows another: financial crises, the European migrant crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine, an energy crisis, and, of course, the climate crisis that has been looming for decades. Do individuals adjust their behavior to mitigate the personal and societal severity of a crisis, and if so, how? Is behavioral change only restricted to domains that relate directly to the crisis, or does it spill over into other domains? How can institutions foster citizens’ cooperation to overcome the crisis? What are the group dynamics emerging from a crisis, and how do they affect the crisis? To answer such questions, we invite contributions from economics, psychology, sociology, and political science.
