NetLogo Models Library: Ethnocentrism

🔒 ccl.northwestern.edu

This model, due to Robert Axelrod and Ross A. Hammond, suggests that ethnocentric” behavior can evolve under a wide variety of conditions, even when there are no native ethnocentrics” and no way to differentiate between agent types. Agents compete for limited space via Prisoner Dilemma’s type interactions. Ethnocentric” agents treat agents within their group more beneficially than those outside their group. The model includes a mechanism for inheritance (genetic or cultural) of strategies.
