21 COE-GLOPE International Conference in Amsterdam

21COE-GLOPE's third international conference, “New Directions in Political Economic Experiments and Behavioral Research,” was held at the University of Amsterdam on October 30 and 31 (co-sponsored by CREED, University of Amsterdam). Inspired by the three invited lecturers, Charles Noussair(Tilburg University), Tatsuyoshi Saijyo (Osaka University), Toshio Yamagishi (Hokkaido University), the conference brought about fruitful discussions on new applications of experiment, simulation and survey methods, and explored new theoretical frontiers in political science, economics and various other fields of social science. 21COE-GLOPE is pleased to announce that the conference was extremely successful in providing chances for many graduate students to present their research and cultivating the basis of future collaboration between Waseda and foreign researchers present at the conference. The proceedings of the conference will be available at the 21COE-GLOPE office, Waseda University at Building 1, Room 308-2, 1-6-1 Nishi-waseda, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan 169-8050.
