EUROSHIP is an international collaborative research project about ways to strengthen social citizenship in Europe. The project will capture personal narratives and experiences among women and men with low education and low income. It puts into focus the opportunities, challenges and responses individuals encounter in different and rapidly changing institutional and societal contexts, also taking into account the new conditions imposed by the Covid-19 emergency. The project is organised in ten work packages (WPs), covering research on a range of sub-themes, project coordination  and a range of dissemination activities.
