29 April 2021, FOCI webinar 'Mutualism in the 21st century: The why, when, and how behind successful risk-sharing institutions'  by Eva Vriens 


During the last 15 years, the number of institutions for collective action has risen significantly in Europe, and especially in the Netherlands. Uncertainty complicates collective action and makes cooperation more fragile. At any moment members can decide to withdraw when support requests are too high. Why do some risk-sharing initiatives succeed, while others don't? To what extent does success depend on the individuals involved or the initiative's social and institutional properties? During a FOCI webinar by former team member Eva Vriens these questions will be answered. using a a multidisciplinary approach. The results of agent-based simulations, abstract experiments and surveys among members of a Dutch risk-sharing organization are integrated to derive multi-faceted evidence on success factors for collective action and uncover institutional opportunities for optimizing the success of mutuals.

 

Eva's webinar, “Mutualism in the 21st century: The why, when, and how behind successful risk-sharing institutions”, will be on April the 29th, at 16.00-17:00. Join the webinar by using this link.
