"Social Norms in Social Sciences"

Monday February 14th 2011  10am-6.30pm

Recent years have seen a renewed interest in social norms.  How  can we define them and explain why people follow them, whether  they be norms of etiquette, cooperation or fairness?  These questions have been raised in numerous fields, from philosophy  and social psychology to economics and game theory, which have led to various accounts.  This interdisciplinary workshop aims to gather, compare and possibly integrate these different perspectives, by considering empirical evidence as well as theoretical accounts.
