ESA-announce Call for papers: theem 2014 on “Cooperation and competition within and between groups", May 15-17 – Reminder of Deadline
5th Thurgau Experimental Economics Meeting (theem)
"Cooperation and competition within and between groups"
May 15-17, 2014, in Stein am Rhein (CH)
Keynote Speakers: Rachel E. Kranton and Jordi Brandts
Group identity shapes the behavior of people. It can foster both cooperation within the group and competition with outsiders. However, we also observe conflicts within groups and cooperation between groups. Various group characteristics and institutions moderate these effects. For this workshop we invite contributions that identify and discuss the mechanisms how group membership affects behavior towards in- and out-group members, how groups interact with each other, and to which extent a group is more than just an aggregation of people. We welcome experimental, theoretical, and empirical research from economics, psychology, and other related disciplines.
