At the 2007 Project on Law and Mind Sciences Conference, Tom Tyler’s presentation was titled “Strategies of Social Control: Motivating Rule Adherence in Organizational Settigings.” Here is the abstract for his talk.
Recent examples of abuse of authority have occurred in two types of organizational settings: corporations and the armed forces. What strategies can be used to bring behavior in such settings into line with rules and policies about appropriate conduct? Dr. Tyler will talk about the value of self-regulatory approaches, examining whether they work and how to make them effective. He will illustrate his arguments using data collected in two contexts: in a multinational corporate bank and among agents of social control (e.g., police officers, federal agents, and infantry soldiers).
Below you can watch a video of Tyler’s fascinating presentation (in 3 roughly 9-minute videos).
