16th Tinbergen Institute Annual Conference: Morals, Purpose and Impact in Markets and Organizations

The 16th Tinbergen Institute Conference: Morals, Purpose and Impact in Markets and Organizations will take place at Erasmus University Rotterdam on April 24-25, 2025.


Introduction

In developed economies, the role of organizations appears to be extending beyond profit maximization to encompass broader societal impact goals. At the same time, people’s morals are shaped in competitive market interactions. The purpose of this workshop is to gather researchers whose recent projects examine either the role of organizations, beyond their primary profit-maximizing purpose, or how organizations use purpose and societal impact goals to maximize profits. We are interested in research investigating how organizations use purpose and societal impact motives to create value for employees, consumers, and shareholders. The workshop will examine how organizations integrate social and environmental considerations into their economic strategies and how different stakeholders (employees, consumers, shareholders) react to such behaviors. We are also interested in research investigating how markets shape people’s morals, and research investigating people’s willingness to accept interventions that are meant to mitigate negative external effects of behavior.

Program, registration and speakers will be published in the fall of 2024.
