What Familydemic is?

Familydemic is a collaborative international project and a network of researchers. Its goal is to advance the theoretical explanations, methods and empirical foundations for studying the diverse immediate and long-term consequences of policy responses to the COVID-19 outbreak for the distribution of paid and unpaid work in couples and their labour market and family outcomes in diverse welfare regime contexts. The project and the network is coordinated by Prof. Anna Kurowska from the University of Warsaw. The cooperating countries are: Canada, Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden and the US.
