HOPE - How Democracies Cope with Covid19: A Data-Driven Approach
As a direct result of the spread of the Corona virus and the acute health crisis in Denmark and the rest of the world, the Carlsberg Foundation grants DKK 25 million to a new Semper Ardens project to investigate behavior in both the public space and on social media. SODAS researchers Rebecca Adler-Nissen and Sune Lehmann will be part of the research team.
The COVID-19 pandemic is the largest sudden crisis for Western democracies since the Second World War. Funded by 27.4 million DKK from the Carlsberg Foundation, the HOPE project examines the interrelationship between:
- the trajectory of the COVID-19
- the decisions of governments and international organisations
- the decisions of media and social media landscapes
- citizens’ behavior and well-being
The HOPE project is a collaboration between Aarhus School of Business and Social Sciences and Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS).
