The 14th Workshop on Social Economy for Young Economists

The Workshop is intended to give young economists a chance to meet and discuss their work on Social Economy, and to stimulate interaction with peers and tenured scholars.

Theoretical, empirical and experimental papers on topics such as social capital, social norms, cooperative and social enterprises, social preferences, and relational goods are welcome.

If you are interested in presenting, and you are at most 35 years old, please send your paper to by April 18th, 2017. Submissions from PhD students are welcome.

The workshop will be hosted by the University of Bologna, Forlì Campus, and features a friendly atmosphere, which allows for discussing high quality research in a convivial environment. Regular sessions will be introduced by two opening lectures held by our keynote speakers: Pedro Dal Bó (Brown University) and Roberto Galbiati (Sciences-Po Paris).

The organization will sponsor the social dinner for the participants and accommodation for the speakers. No fee is required, but all participants are warmly requested to attend all sessions. At the end of the workshop, the most innovative paper will be awarded the 2017 Young Economists’ Workshop on Social Economy Award.
