Chris Reinders Folmer is a post-doctoral researcher at the research program Behavioural Approach for Contract and Tort, affiliated with the Rotterdam Institute of Private Law and the Rotterdam Institute of Law and Economics. His background is in social and economical psychology (PhD 2008, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam). His research integrates psychological, legal and economic perspectives to empirically test the assumptions that underlie legal practice and policy making, identify possible discrepancies, and develop alternatives informed by these perspectives. Key research topics include 1) the remedial effectiveness of reparations in private law, focusing particularly on the value of apology; 2) misperceptions between legal actors on their litigation goals, and how these are shaped by the demands of their role; and 3) impact of litigation process and outcomes beyond the courtroom. More generally, his research interests include trust, decision making, social dilemmas, ethics, and reputation.

His future research aims to link these topics to the broader question of reducing unemployment, particularly in the case of disability, to understand how policy and litigation outcomes may contribute to people’s (re)employment following workplace accidents.
