|Initiative:||Corona Crisis and Beyond – Perspectives for Science, Scholarship and Society (completed)|
|Allocation:||Dec 10, 2020|
|Period of funding:||1 Year 6 Months|
Using computational social science methods, this project interrogates how key narratives about the causes and consequences of the economic crisis resulting from the Corona pan-demic are negotiated in the German and Italian public debate. It compares the public debate in two different socio-economic, political and institutional settings over a period of 18 months to determine how these societies are embracing opportunities for designing a sustainable and fair economic order. The project develops tools that lay bare the underlying moral logic behind economic discourse and thus offers a critical contribution to understanding policy choices in the 21st century.
