Welcome to the 2022 IAREP conference in Kristiansand, Norway
We are pleased to announce that the IAREP conference 2022 will be hosted by The School of Business and Law at the University of Agder (UiA). This is an interdisciplinary meeting point of scholars who are interested in the intersection of economics and psychology, as well as sociology, anthropology, neuroscience, and biology.
In the last few months IAREP has been working on rewriting its Mission and Vision, as to reflect about the future of our gatherings, our initiatives, and our association in general. We were not surprised to find out that, during our brainstorming activities, our colleagues and board members, actually our friends from different parts of the world, have mentioned the words "human welfare” and “fairness” quite often.
We are not surprised because we have always known that IAREP's pillars go far beyond the pursuit of research and scientific excellence: our values also include a friendly, inclusive research environment, regardless of geographical, cultural, or political differences.
That is why IAREP and our host for the 2022 IAREP Conference, the University of Agder (UiA), stand united in support of Ukraine and in support of democracy, human rights, and peace everywhere and firmly condemn the violence perpetrated against the people of Ukraine. Everyday our thoughts go to our fellow colleagues and friends around the world that have been impacted by the events we are witnessing.

The conference will be planned as an in-person conference, and we hope that most contributors will be able to be present in Kristiansand in June. However, we know that the Covid19-situation is difficult to predict and that some authors may be unable to attend because of travel restrictions. We intend to organise some hybrid sessions allowing digital presentations of papers and attendance for authors who are prevented from travelling. We aim at scheduling keynotes and meetings at times we think will be convenient for colleagues in Asia and many American countries. However, note that due to differences in time zones, it may be difficult to be able to participate at all events digitally.
