Call for chapters – Wellbeing and Policy

Wellbeing and Policy: Evidence for Action” to be published by Routledge.

While wellbeing is high on the political agenda in many countries, the outcome of several initiatives remain undocumented or, at best, documented in grey literature in various languages. The purpose of this edited volume is to survey and document the empirical evidence and evaluation of wellbeing initiatives, interventions and to highlight actionable points.

This will be a peer-reviewed, open-access, comprehensive resource for academics and policymakers. For more details please take a look at the call and the contributor’s guidelines. If you are interested in contributing a chapter, please send a message to Natalia Czap (nczap@umich.edu).

We would be grateful if you could share this call within your circles.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Call for Proposals to organize a SABE Session at the ASSA 2023 in New Orleans and/or at the SEA 2022 in Fort Lauderdale

The Society for the Advancement of Behavioral Economics (SABE) is inviting proposals to organize the SABE session at the Allied Social Sciences Associations (ASSA) meeting in 2023 and/or the Southern Economic Association (SEA) meeting in 2022.

The ASSA is a three-day meeting organized by the American Economic Association (AEA) in conjunction with 58 associations from related disciplines. In 2023 the meeting will take place in New Orleans, LA (January 6-8, Hilton Riverside). The ASSA meeting is very prestigious and therefore of significant importance to SABE. The latest SABE sessions at the ASSA can be found here: 2021, 2022.

The 92nd Annual Meeting of the SEA will be held in Fort Lauderdale, FL, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort, November 19-21, 2022. The Southern Economic Association is one of the oldest economics associations in the United States, dating back to a conference held in Atlanta in November 1928.

If you are interested in organizing the SABE Session with the focus on Behavioral Economics at the ASSA and/or the SEA meeting, please fill out the attached session proposal application and send it along with a PDF version of your CV to assa@sabeconomics.org by May 15, 2022 for ASSA, and April 25, 2022 for SEA (or both).

Please note that priority for organizing the ASSA session of SABE will be given to applicants who have not done so in the past 3 years.

In addition, while a tentative proposal is generally acceptable, a detailed, confirmed, and well thought-out proposal is appreciated, and will be preferred over a more tentative proposal, all things equal.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome no later than May 1, 2022 (SEA Proposal) and June 1, 2022 (ASSA proposal).  Please be aware that there will be only one SABE session at ASSA, but there could be multiple sessions of SABE at SEA, so the chance of acceptance of the proposals for the SABE sessions at SEA is higher, however the deadline for SEA sessions is not extendable at all.  Note that the SEA waives the submission fees ($35) for papers that are accepted as part of an Allied Organization session, such as the SABE sessions.

Please forward this email to scholars who might be interested in this call for proposals.

Looking forward to your application,

Michelle Baddeley
SABE President

The WEAI is planning to hold the 2022 annual conference in-person in Portland, Oregon. See https://weai.org/conferences/view/12/97th-Annual-Conference (though given the on-going COVID-19 pandemic it is of course possible that the conference will be virtual).

If you would like to propose a session, please email jifcher@scu.edu by FRIDAY, 1/21/22, with the following:
