Emotions and Charitable Giving

The survival of human societies is largely based on a considerable amount of cooperation among its members. It is therefore crucial to understand the forces and the conditions that enable individuals to cooperate.

This half day workshop consisting of talks by academics and local practitioners will explore the causal links between emotions and human behaviour, with a specific focus on social dilemma situations, where personal and collective interests are at odds. These situations characterise important social phenomena such as donations to charities, environmental protection, tax compliance and participation in collective actions.
