Workshop "Eating Meat 2019 - Determinants, consequences and interventions"

The goal of this workshop is to bring together scholars from the social sciences working on the various aspects of human consumption of animal products. We want to engage in a discussion about what we know and do not know about the consumption of meat and dairy, its economic and environmental consequences, as well as possible ways to design effective interventions. Topics include, but are not limited to, psychological aspects of why humans eat (or do not eat) meat, the economic analyses of information effects and other interventions on the consumption of animal products, and the evaluations of regulatory instruments like taxes.

We invite submissions of both empirical and theoretical social science that fit the workshop’s theme. Please submit your full paper or an extended abstract to EatingMeat2019 [at] diw.de by July 28, 2019. Notifications will be sent by August 12, 2019.
In addition, there are a limited number of slots for researchers who want to participate without presenting a paper. If you would like to do so, please send an e-mail to EatingMeat2019 [at] diw.de including a brief motivation and indicate whether you are willing to act as a discussant.
