About CIVEX

CIVEX (Exclusion from civic engagement of a diverse older population: Features, experiences and policy implications) is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary research project funded under the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) “More Years, Better Lives”.

CIVEX aims to investigate features of exclusion from multidimensional civic engagement in later life and older adults’ experiences of such exclusion, and to identify evidence-based policy responses to address exclusion from civic activities.

CIVEX includes research teams from five European countries selected to represent Continental (Belgium), Southern (Spain), Nordic (Finland and Sweden) and Anglo-Saxon (UK) welfare state regimes and cultural contexts. The national teams are supported by the following grants: Belgium (BELSPO, B2/21E/P3/CIVEX), Finland (Academy of Finland, 345022), Spain (Spanish State Research Agency, PCI2021-121951), Sweden (Forte, 2020-01535) and UK (Economic and Social Research Council, ES/W001438/1).
