Summer School on Decision Making 2017

Behavioural Science Group Summer School 2017, Social Choice and Ethics, 4 – 7 July, 2017 

The issues of social justice and ethics percolate extensively in various aspects of decision-making including policy choices and business strategies. The last decade, particularly, has witnessed the emergence of novel theoretical and empirical models in social choice theory, welfare economics, and ethics. The Summer School is targeted at doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and junior faculty in the fields of economics, behavioural science, and management and organisation studies who are interested in learning novel economic and behavioural science approaches to justice, fairness, and ethics. The School will take place at University of Warwick, United Kingdom. It will feature series of lectures by distinguished economists and behavioural scientists who have made significant contributions to the fields. The school will also be a platform for conversation among the lecturers and other participants with ample opportunities for discussions. Although the school is targeted at junior researchers, all are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact:

This will be the fifth summer school on decision-making held by Warwick Business School (WBS).
