Abstract

In a meta-analytical review of thiny-mree original publications the strength and the extent of a eausal relation between responsibility and ecological behaviour is examined. Research in this domain builds mainly on two social psychological research genealogies: the 'helping others' and me 'attribution of responsibility' traditions. Surprisingly, both research traditions are distinguishable by publication language as wel!. While the strength of me relation varies from medium to, at best, large effects depending on the application of me responsibility concept, an average - based entirely on non-experimental studies methodological rigour indicates only weak support for a causal link to ecological behaviour in general.
