Economic change, unequal life-chances and quality of life

Objective

The proposal is aimed at establishing a network involving teams of five major research institutions with established track records in comparative European research. The network will focus on the theme of "Economic Change, Unequal Life-chances and Quality of Life". More particularly it will focus on two interrelated themes dealing with (i) the processes relating to the translation of economic and social resources into economic, social and political participation, (ii) methodological problems in comparative research. It will first seek to provide an assessment of the current state of research and, ultimately, a proposed agenda for future research. Members of the proposed network have been centrally involved in the development of European social indicators for use in the post-Lisbon process and we anticipate that the output of the network will contribute to the ongoing process of the development of such indicators.
