Area B

Individuals, Families, and Households

Projects in area B examine individual resilience with a focus on the context of households and families. Projects study health and well-being in times of crises and how new technologies and healthcare policies may improve them. Further projects study the resilience of (financial) decision-making and the effects of working from home. While explaining the effects of crises on each of these phenomena is important, it is also necessary to understand their interactions. The focus of all projects on resilience of individuals in context of the household environment offers promising connections for inter-project and multidisciplinary research to explain these interactions which is an important step towards explaining societal resilience.
