The purpose of this book is to offer insights into solving a broad range of social problems such as those found in transportation, urban life, and environment. Based on the assumption that one of the most effective approaches is to model these real-life social problems as social dilemmas, and by drawing on a variety of research, this book theoretically, empirically, and practically discussed how to implement social policies that can solve social dilemmas in reality
