Kiel-Rostock Social and Biological Roots of Economics Workshop - SBREW 2016
The workshop’s agenda is to explore the underlying individual and social determinants of economic behavior, including interactions between these levels. Our approach draws on recent research in experimental economics and evolutionary biology suggesting that the successful emergence of cooperation within groups depends on the specific characteristics of culture-specific social norms, moral values, and individual preferences, which become established in a society. We seek work that synthesizes insights from cognitive sciences, physiology and (epi-)genetics with empirical or theoretical social science. We will welcome all submissions that explore the interface between economics and both the social and biological roots of human decisions or which use methodologies from any of the life or social sciences to investigate economic questions. Submissions can use experiments, observation, or theory to expand our understanding of human decision making. These include, but are not limited to behavioral and evolutionary game theory, psychology, sociology, and experiments utilizing fMRI, SCR, pulse and blood pressure readings, eye tracking, genetic analysis, hormone studies and pharmaceutical or other medical treatment interventions. We particularly seek work that integrates these disparate insights by studying the interaction between social and individual determinants of behavior.
