Causal inference is based on the assumption of “conditional exchangeability”. This is not verifiable based on the data when using nonparametric modelling. A ``sensititvity analysis’’ considers the effect of deviations from the assumption. In a Bayesian framework, we could put a prior on the size of the deviation and obtain an ordinary posterior. We review possible approaches and present some results comparing different ways of nonparametric modelling.
