Manchester Environmental Economics Workshop, 2017: Social references and environmental and natural resource economics
The workshop will bring together expertise and insights from recent international work in behavioural environmental economics. The workshop will present state-of-the-art research and discuss whether and how the interplay of social preferences, norms, financial instruments and/or institutions can affect environmental, resource and energy conservation policies.
The workshop provides a platform for researchers in environmental and resource economics who use theoretical, lab/field/choice experiments and empirical methods to examine the effect of social preferences on environmental and resource economics. By bringing these research strands together, the workshop provides an opportunity to exchange ideas, produce new research topics, share insights on how to deal with some of the methodological and conceptual challenges in these areas, and to map out a new research agenda.
