Fellow-Projekt: „Quality of Society: The Impact of Inclusive Approaches to tackling Poverty, Inequality and Social Exclusion in Eastern Europe“

Poverty, inequality and social exclusion are the most fundamental problems that humanity faces and which have a growing tendency in the world and in the EU, especially in Eastern European countries. This is due in particular to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Russia's aggression against Ukraine, rising energy prices, inflation, food shortages, and the climate crisis. The project focuses on the interdisciplinary investigation of inclusive development policy, inclusive approaches and their possibilities and impact on improving standards of the quality of life and the quality of society. We assume that everyone has the right to participate in civic, political, economic, social and cultural life, and traditional economic development strategies are becoming more expensive. Inclusive approaches do not conflict with business interests and can benefit economic growth and equity. Greater diversity and greater participation in the workforce also leads to innovation and stimulates the new businesses creation. I explore strategies for equal opportunities for education and employment, policies to reduce poverty, inequality and social exclusion in European countries, in particular in the context of achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the features of digital inclusion as an important component of inclusive development policy in the context of Europe’s digital future.
