Registration will open soon for the seventh Science of Philanthropy Initiative (SPI) Conference, presented in partnership with the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics at The University of Chicago.
SPI is an initiative started by John List, Michael Price and Anya Samek in 2012 to encourage experimental (field and lab) research on charitable giving. In addition to providing an avenue for research discussions, another aim of the conference is to bring together researchers studying charitable giving with practitioners in the field of philanthropy.
We would like to invite presentations that use laboratory or field experiments to investigate social preferences that shape philanthropic giving (including altruism, reciprocity, inequity aversion, warm-glow giving, etc.), techniques charities may use to increase giving, the role of culture on giving, and development of social preferences (i.e., experiments with children/young adults). Topics that are also of interest are volunteerism, the organization of charities/how they operate, and organ/blood donation.
Additionally, we are pleased to announce a partnership with the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization to release a Special Issue focusing on The Economics of Charitable Giving. Papers accepted at the SPI Conference 2020 may be considered for publication in the Special Issue.
Feel free to contact the guest editors to discuss the fit of different topics to the Special Issue.
