This project is financed by the Danish Independent Research Fund (DFF- 6109-0013B).
The central focus of NORMA will be the execution of a research project that addresses the following main objectives:
1). To improve our understanding of non-manipulable resource allocation mechanisms. In particular, we will explore the efficiency and equity properties of non-manipulable mechanisms.
2) To investigate the normative foundations of population health evaluation and to develop an improved methodology for integrating concerns for equality and altruism in health care allocation. We will develop a new theory for incorporating broader social preferences about health care allocation decisions and tackle issues such as risk and time consistency.
3) To develop new methods for the elicitation of social preferences for health care allocation. In particular, we will develop a unified framework and a new experimental strategy for elicitation of individual and social preferences for deterministic and risky health outcomes.
