Call for Papers

Workshop on The Determinants and Implications of Prosocial Behaviour
May 6-7, 2011 University of Southampton, UK

This workshop aims to bring together a small group of researchers interested in the
determinants and implications of prosocial behaviour. Both theoretical contributions as well as empirical papers using experimental or field data are welcome. The goal is to
disseminate recent findings and foster interaction among economists of diverse interests (theory and empirics). We also welcome submissions with an interdisciplinary approach that draw insights from related disciplines such as psychology and management.
Topics of interest include but are not restricted to research on:
– Microfoundations of prosocial preferences
– Contribution to public goods
– Collective action engagement
– Charitable giving and fundraising
– Volunteering
– Prosocial behaviour in the workplace
– Corporate social responsibility

We are delighted to have keynote speeches delivered by:
• Gary Charness (UCSB)
• Tore Ellingsen (Stockholm School of Economics)
• Imran Rasul (UCL)
The workshop is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the
Third Sector Research Centre. There will be no charge for participating and
accommodation will be provided. Some funds are also available to meet travel costs for presenters. Please indicate in your response whether you will require funding.

To apply, please send an email with your paper attached as a PDF file to:
