About this book

New Issues and Paradigms in Research on Social Dilemmas
Edited by Anders Biel, Daniel Eek, Tommy Garling, and Mathias Gustafson
Psykologiska Instutitionen, Gotenburg University, Gotenburg, Sweden

 

This edited volume has been compiled to present new theoretical and methodological developments in the field of social dilemma research. Social dilemmas are situations when there is a conflict between self-interest and collective interest. Research in this area has gained interest in the last twenty years in disciplines such as sociology, psychology, and economics. It also has wide applications to numerous real-world issues including environmental degradation, organizational management, and provision of societal public good. The three sections in the volume mirror the different levels of analysis in this research: the individual, group, and societal levels.
