Webinar | Dimensions of well-being

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our well-being in many dimensions. Understanding how these dimensions interact and what factors influence the overall level of well-being can be instrumental in policy design today and in the process of recovery once the pandemic is over. With this in mind, the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics and the FREE Network invites you to participate in an online academic workshop on 'Dimensions of well-being'.

Research that will be presented at the workshop covers analysis of determinants of well-being including age and gender, as well as regional and historical perspectives on welfare.

The program (see full program at the end of this page) includes a special session focused on the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic for different aspects of well-being.

The workshop will be organised as part of the Forum for Research on Gender Economics (FROGEE) supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida)


The online workshop will be moderated by Michal Myck, Director of the Centre for Economic Analysis (CenEA/Poland).
