In 2020, we are working on four research projects.
Project 1 - Theoretical work on subjective well-being measures
This project is a mixture of original philosophical investigation and literature review on the following questions:
Project 2 - Assessing the cost-effectiveness of life-improving interventions in terms of subjective well-being
How can we use SWB to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of global health and development interventions? How strong is the currently available evidence? How do our priorities change when we use SWB as compared to more traditional metrics?
Project 3 - Mental health programme evaluation.
A team of volunteers are searching for the most effective programmes tackling depression and anxiety in LMICs. Read more here.
Project 4 - Scoping reports into pain, mental health, and positive education.
These reports aim to investigate means to improve global well-being that seem unduly neglected. We are considering the scale, neglectedness, bottlenecks, and solutions within each broadly-defined cause area. Read about our positive education plan here.
