CESifo Conference on Social Economics 2014

  • Conference Call
  • On March 21 – 22, 2014 CESifo will organ­ise a con­fer­ence on Social Eco­nom­ics in Munich, Ger­many. The pur­pose of the con­fer­ence is to bring together inter­na­tional schol­ars work­ing in this field and to stim­u­late research on this theme.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    The con­fer­ence wel­comes con­tri­bu­tions to new devel­op­ments in social eco­nom­ics, a grow­ing area of study that breaches eco­nom­ics with social sci­ence. Specif­i­cally, the key ques­tions that we will touch upon include the role cul­ture, iden­tity, altru­ism, altru­ism esteem and sta­tus as com­pet­ing with tra­di­tional tan­gi­ble and mon­e­tary moti­va­tion for behav­iour. We wel­come the­o­ret­i­cal con­tri­bu­tions as well as appli­ca­tions to any area of social pol­icy includ­ing health, edu­ca­tion, social care, and labour markets.

    The ulti­mate goal of the con­fer­ence is to exam­ine the lim­its of social moti­va­tions as well as how they inter­act with other tan­gi­ble moti­va­tions. How­ever, broader con­tri­bu­tions to the dis­ci­pline of social eco­nom­ics will be con­sid­ered, too. We wel­come both empir­i­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal papers that address policy-​relevant ques­tions. Authors of sub­mit­ted papers will be noti­fied no later than 1 Decem­ber 2013 as to whether their paper has been accepted for the workshop.

    Keynote Lectures

    • Pro­fes­sor Frank Cow­ell – Lon­don School of Eco­nom­ics (LSE)
    • Pro­fes­sor Luigi Guiso – Euro­pean Uni­ver­sity Insti­tute and the Ein­audi Insti­tute for Eco­nom­ics and Finance

    Pub­li­ca­tion Possibility

    A selec­tion of the con­fer­ence papers will be pub­lished in a Con­fer­ence Vol­ume by MIT Press. It is under­stood that all sub­mis­sions to the con­fer­ence imply sub­mis­sion to the pub­li­ca­tion out­let. The papers pre­sented at the work­shop can be revised after the work­shop to include com­ments. This revised ver­sion will then be sub­mit­ted to the con­fer­ence vol­ume. Final pub­li­ca­tion deci­sions are based on a stan­dard ref­er­ee­ing process.

    Accom­mo­da­tion and Costs

    CESifo will pro­vide accom­mo­da­tion, and will reim­burse econ­omy travel costs, for all par­tic­i­pants with accepted papers. Other researchers are invited to par­tic­i­pate, but are expected to pro­vide their own fund­ing for travel and accom­mo­da­tion and to pay a con­fer­ence fee.
