Lay Summary (Italian)

Lead
L'obiettivo principale di questo progetto di ricerca è di investigare come la cooperazione possa emergere e stabilirsi in società gerarchiche.
Lay summary

A partire da precedenti studi sulla cooperazione condotti da ricercatori nel campo dell'economia e della fisica, con questo progetto vogliamo andare oltre lo studio della cooperazione altruistica e investigare come funzioni la cooperazione in società gerarchiche. Più precisamente, questo progetto vuole svelare come le relazioni sociali, come quelle gerarchiche, influenzino positivamente, o negativamente, l'evoluzione della cooperazione nelle società. Verranno sviluppati dei nuovi modelli di comportamento umano e di formazione di gruppi, concentrandosi sullo studio di fenomeni emergenti dal comportamento dei singoli individui.

Abstract

The main scope of this research project is to combine complex systems science and experimental economics to make a breakthrough in our understanding of the emergence and stability of cooperation in hierarchical societies. Departing from precedent investigations on cooperation carried out by many researchers from the economics, biology and physics community, I want to go beyond mere altruistic cooperation and study how people work together to achieve common goals when they are organized as a hierarchical society. More precisely, this research work aims to understand how social relationships, such as hierarchical ones, function to impede or promote cooperation in human societies, bridging the current gap between studies of human behaviour and theoretical predictions. I already developed a novel experimental framework which extends results obtained investigating cooperative behaviour from a more traditional experimental economics viewpoint, i.e., between anonymous individuals devoid of any hierarchical structure. Within this study I investigated how people behave in the presence of a hierarchical structure when playing an asymmetric Prisoners Dilemma game. In the FNS advance postdoc mobility extension grant, I will study how cooperation and human interactions act in hierarchical groups when people are involved in population games, such as Public Goods Games or n-player Stag Hunt games. I will design new models of human behaviour and group dynamics, focusing on the study of emergent phenomena arising from the feedback between global features and individual actions. Such an interplay between experiments and modelling, which I have successfully applied in recent research, will lead to experimentally verifiable predictions and important implications for policy making. The role of hierarchy in population games is also very relevant to address problems such as the origin of the first human societies and management issues in large scale organisations.
