Gastvortrag von Henk Elffers (VU Amsterdam)

Vortragsreihe "Arbeits-, Organisations- und Wirtschaftspsychologie": The rules of rule compliance

Besprechungsraum AOW-Psychologie (NIG, 6. Stock)
Universitätsstraße 7, 1010 Wien


Under what circumstances do people comply with legal or social rules, and when do they transgress them? Working within the rational choice perspective, I distinguish three aspects of rule transgression: “being able”, “willing” and “daring” to transgress. I analyse which measures are promising for furthering rule compliance: strengthening social norms, closing off opportunities, and increasing deterrence by legal authorities. During the presentation I will challenge the audience to classify rules and measures against non-compliance along those dimensions.
