International conference on the policies for happiness: call for papers

International conference on the policies for happiness: call for papers. The conference will take place in Siena, Italy 14-17 June 2007. Abstract should be submitted by 31 January 2007. The questions addressed in the conference are going to be ‘what should be done to improve the quality of people’s lives? Can economic and social changes be made which enhance well-being? What policies are required? How do policies for well-being differ from traditional ones targeted on redistribution, the correction of market inefficiencies, and growth? Are there dimensions of well-being that have been neglected by traditional policies? Is happiness a meaningful policy target?
In the description of the conference is added that: ‘An answer to these questions may require an inter-disciplinary approach (economics, sociology, psychology, political science, urban science, anthropology, neuroscience). By means of this conference we intend to encourage a discussion among scholars of different disciplines with the aim of promoting research on economic, social and cultural reforms which are capable of generating well-being.‘ – A CONFERENCE NOT TO BE MISSED.
