22 November 2022 @ 15:00 - 16:30

The UPLIFT project is organising an on-line session on the 22 of November between 3-4.30 PM (CET) to share the results of a comparative research investigating how the economic strengths of cities and local policies influence social inequalities in urban young population.

The research is based on two different methods: first a quantitative analysis was implemented from the dataset of the European Quality of Life Survey, and second, 16 urban areas of UPLIFT were analysed from the perspective of their labour market structure and local welfare systems based on desk research and interviews. While the quantitative analysis found slight connections between certain economic and welfare parameters, the qualitative analysis calls attention to those factors that may divert economic development to go hand in hand with social cohesion.

The session will be based on two short presentations on the research findings by Áber Csathó from TÁRKI and Éva Gerőházi from Metropolitan Research Institute, and feedback will be provided by Yuri Kazepov, Professor at Department of Sociology, University of Vienna and Ruggero Cefalo, Post Doc Researcher at the Department of Sociology, University of Vienna.

We would be happy to discuss with you our scientific results, on which you may find more details in chapter 6 of the Synthesis Report  and you can dive into each individual urban case by looking at the urban reports.
