This study discusses the experience of the implementation of a peer-norm in reducing conflicts in teamwork. This field experiment is run with two cohorts of students coursing external trade. I investigate on student potential collusion in homework projects performed by assigned groups. The empirical analysis identifies that the success of this norm is associated with the presence of foreign students as a key factor for the achievement of a separating-type equilibrium.
