We analyse activities and policies in society from the perspective of the wellbeing of the individual and of the communities in which they live and work.

Wellbeing is difficult, if not impossible, to measure, as it is realised indirectly when society provides sufficient security and opportunities in an environment that supports wellbeing throughout the life cycle.

Agenda2030 and the jointly agreed UN Sustainable Development Goals provide a useful governance tool promoting prosperity across generations globally. Implementing the SDGs requires cross-cutting action at all levels of decision-making. Achieving the goals of sustainable development requires up-to-date information on the factors that promote wellbeing in the ever-changing operating environments here and elsewhere. In addition, there is a need for more information on how policy measures can be used to effectively target public funds to promote these factors.

Reliable institutions, publicly funded services, an income transfer system and the promotion of economic activity each play key roles in supporting the wellbeing of a skilled, healthy and employable population, while also not forgetting the importance of accessible natural and cultural capital. Effective legislation and other measures are thus required to promote inclusion and equality, especially for the most vulnerable in our communities.
The following themes are part of our expertise in wellbeing and its promotion:

  • Wellbeing and a good life relationship and quality of life
  • Participation
  • Equality
  • Welfare economy
  • Income transfer and social security system
  • Public services
