Quality of life is seen as an increasingly important policy concern at national and international level. The project would involve looking at what this means for different communities within societies and different societies cross-nationally. Quality of life can be measured subjectively (through surveys and interviews) or objectively using a range of collective statistics. A particular focus is how it can be used to enable community wellbeing at a more localised level. The use of digital communications in this process is a key area of interest.
