Experimental Analysis of Dynamic Negotiation Processes under Social Dilemmas

On the basis of the findings from WP1, WP2 implements experimental methods in order to examine aspects of dynamic negotiation processes. The aspects considered may include, for example, dynamic contributions and whether changes have occurred in terms of the contributions made to a public good. This experimental arrangement can be applied where signals for possible implications accumulate over the course of time,  even where  the historical contributions made to public goods are generally unknown. Such approaches enable the analysis of information asymmetries which arise during negotiation processes. The extension of asymmetric information to groups with different characteristics provides scope for analysis of the willingness of such groups to cooperate in the process of public good provision under different circumstances. This also allows for assessment of transformation processes in regard to a number of variables, such as inequality, the diversity of groups engaged in negotiations, information asymmetries, and uncertainty.
