Dimensions of Well-being

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our well-being in many dimensions. Understanding how these dimensions interact and what factors influence the overall level of well-being can be instrumental in policy design today and in the process of recovery once the pandemic is over. With this in mind, the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics, the Centre for Economic Analysis and the FREE Network invite you to participate in an online academic workshop on ‘Dimensions of well-being’.


  • RSVP: Monday, June 28, 2021, 23:59 (CET, Sweden).
  • Location: Online. A link to the webinar will be sent to you 4-5 hours ahead of the start of the webinar.
  • Registration: Please register via the Eventbrite platform (see here).
