The Covid Generation research project
The Covid Generation is a collaborative project involving researchers from FORS, the University of Lausanne and the University of Neuchâtel. It examines wellbeing of young people as well as the response of the policy field to support their wellbeing.
1. How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected wellbeing of young people?
Specifically, we examime how wellbeing changed over time, what were the main drivers, which groups were most at risk and which protective factors mitigated negative consequences for wellbeing?
2. What can we learn from the policy response for future crises?
Specifically, did policy initiatives to support young people during the pandemic focus on the groups most at risk, and lessons can be drawn from the development and implementation of these programs?
We work closely together with several partners from the policy field.
The project will run until 2026 and is financed through the NRP80 “Covid in Society”.
