Published: 16th June 2020 Last updated: 19th June 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a major impact on our society. In addition to caring for the many patients, every effort is being made to contain the coronavirus. What effects do social distancing measures have on our social contacts, our mental health, our jobs, and the economy? How do we overcome this crisis as best we can? Tilburg University, harnessing its focus on the humanities and the social sciences, deploys the research and expertise it fosters to help find answers.

The online platform contains contributions and insights from our scientists about the effects of the social distancing society. The research is bundled in different domains: influence on behaviour, consequences for the economy, and role of governance, law and privacy. On the platform you find news, background articles, vlogs, videos, podcasts and webinars.
