The 15th "Social Monitoring and Reporting in Europe" – Conference addresses two likewise pressing questions simultaneously:

- How do the longer-term social developments in Europe look like, and did they result in increasing divergence recently, as some observers suspect? Reflecting on the diagnosis of "growing divides", the conference seeks to bring together and discuss empirical evidence allowing to better assess whether or not and to what extent European societies are diverging in terms of well-being, attitudes and socioeconomic structures.

- A second, but related question concerns recent observations of major reversals in social trends regarding well-being, attitudes and behavior, and how these are connected with the Corona pandemic. What is the nature and what are the causes of these changes, and will the COVIT-19 pandemic prove to be a major "game changer" for future developments?

The conference will be held as an online only event on March 9, 2021, from 09:30 to 17:30 (CET) or 08:30 to 16:30 (GMT).
