cosmos logoThe “Living with Hard Times: How European Citizens Deal with Economic Crises and Their Social and Political Consequences” research project has received a three year grant from the Seventh Framework Programme.

Lorenzo Bosi is the director of the Italian section of the project, which will run out of the COSMOS Centre at the EUI and coordinated by Marco Giugni of the University of Geneve.

According to Bosi: ”This project aims to provide evidence-based knowledge about citizens’ resilience in times of economic crises allowing for more effective policy responses to the negative consequences of such crises. It examines in particular the ways in which European citizens have reacted to the crisis that, at different degree of intensity in different countries, struck Europe since 2008, but also how they deal with economic crises and their consequences more generally.”
