Call for papers: Workshop ‘The Causes and Consequences of Happiness’

Each paper presenter will serve as discussant of one paper. The conference will comprise both invited and contributed papers. Confirmed speakers so far include Nick Powdthavee (LSE), Ghazala Azmat (QMU London), and Ronnie Schöb (FU Berlin).
