Modelling and understanding of preferences has undergone major changes during the last two decades - the concept of social preferences has challenged the neoclassical economics paradigm of self-centered preferences. Rabin's seminal work "Incorporating Fairness into Game Theory and Economics" (AER, 1993) initiated the quest for game theoretic solution concepts that consider fairness notions explicitly. This Special Issue follows in those footsteps seeking theoretical and applied contributions that consider equilibrium concepts that incorporate or address fairness, that discuss the relationship between standard game theoretic solution concepts and fairness or justice notions, or that analyze existing or introduce new games or experiments exploring the relevance of fairness in the context of strategic behavior.
