Survey almost completed

We have almost completed our surveys in all countries. We would like to thank everyone who participated for their time and hope that the project offered you new insights into your everyday lives.

The initial survey results are promising and we will discuss them with our Policy Advisory Boards (PAB) in the coming months. We will also try to relate our findings to the local political situation. In early 2017, we will begin publishing our findings.


Thanks to everyone
