Quality of Life: a Challenge for Social Policy.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Research Institute for Quality of Life

International Conference of the Research Institute for Quality of Life, Romanian Academy.

Bucharest, 23-25 April 2015

In the past 50 years, Quality of Life increasingly became a key issue, the most important goal to be pursued by individuals. The process started in the more advanced democracies, replacing the mere search for material wealth, and putting at the top of the public agenda new challenges for social organisation and, in particular, for social policy. In the past 25 years, former communist societies around the globe also started, to different extents, to experience the shift. Their particular status was labelled as “double-risk societies”, to show that they simultaneously experience different social changes typical to contemporary age, but also social processes frozen by the communist regimes.

At its landmark 25th year, the Research Institute for Quality of Life is hosting a conference on the topic of quality of life as a challenge for social policy. The conference includes plenary meetings with keynote speeches, thematic sessions with presentations and round tables. Keynote speakers in plenary sessions are Fillomena Maggino, Christian Suter, Ruut Veenhoven and Claire Wallace.

We also invite individual or multi-authored presentations to thematic sessions. If interested to deliver a presentation at the conference, please apply online to one of the sessions on the conference website before the 21st of January 2015. The accepted proposals will be acknowledged by the 6th of February 2015.


We will be glad to have you in Bucharest in April!
