Selected CIVIS students (except students from Sapienza Università di Roma) will be supported by a grant (please contact your university for any information).
This short course intends to present and discuss the consequences and changes taking place in European countries before, during and after the Covid-19 crisis: in the light of these evidences, it will be possible to imagine future scenarios of public policies to face the consequences of the crisis, as well as for business and finance. Past demographic trends will be the basis for analysing the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on mortality, birth rates and migration.
