SolPan Blog

The team of the research group “Centre for the Study of Contemporary Solidarity” (CeSCoS) from the University of Vienna presents the results of the interview study “Solidarity in times of a pandemic - what do people do, and why?” in a blog.

The study aims to find out how people in Austria deal with the restrictions and challenges during the pandemic. In two interview phases (phase 1: April 2020; phase 2: October 2020), the SolPan team Austria spoke to the same 80 people from different social groups in Austria on the phone to hear about their everyday life, and their views on the pandemic containment measures.

You can find more information about the authors of the blog here, and their areas of expertise below the blog posts.

If you have any media or other queries, please contact the project leads Barbara Prainsack and/or Katharina Kieslich.

The latest findings from the study are regularly presented in the blog posts listed below:
