【报告摘要】

We conduct a field experiment in a typical Chinese jail to examine in-group bias in groups with negative identity and social image. Inmates are provided with an opportunity to work for a charity. We find evidences of both pro-sociality and in-group favoritism among prisoners. Inmates increase their effort when their productivity is associated with contribution to a charity. They work harder when the beneficiary carries the prisoner identity, which indicates the existence of in-group favoritism. On the other hand, the length of time in prison weakens the inmates’in-group favoritism. Inmates who have stayed in prison for a longer period are less likely to increase the effort to help the in-group member. This negative effect is not observed when the beneficiary is an outsider. We suggest that the negative in-group interaction among inmates explains this negative effect. Our findings highlight the importance of social interaction in the formation of in-group bias.
