ABOUT US

The Laboratory for Experimental Anthropology, also called Anthropo-Lab, is a research group of ETHICS (EA 7446) @ the Catholic University of Lille. The Anthropo-Lab was created in September 2015 with the aim to improve our understanding of the social facets of human behavior. At the Anthropo-Lab, we explore the ultimate causes of human cooperation (in particular, the origins of care and solidarity), what can we do to steer human behavior towards cooperative social outcomes, and how can we respond to the ethical concerns raised by the anthropological mutations (e.g. transhumanism, artificial intelligence). To answer these questions, we use a wide set of behavioral experiments ranging from laboratory and field experiments to large scale incentivized online experiments.
