Research Group Economic and Social Well-being

Understanding the determinants of a good life and society


We work on the theoretical and empirical analysis of many major challenges individuals and society face: inequality, insecurity, poverty, health and well-being

Some of our current research

Our research is both theoretical and applied, and addresses many major social issues. We often take a life-cycle approach, using panel and birth-cohort data to link early-life events to later-life outcomes. Our research is also interdisciplinary, mixing Economics, Psychology and the Life Sciences. We aim to provide a better understanding of individual and societal well-being, and suggest policies.
