"Solidarity in times of crisis: perceptions of deservingness during the pandemic in Switzerland" is a project launched by the IDHEAP, nccr on the move and the LIVES Center following the COVID-19 crisis. This project focus on the implications of the pandemic and of its economic fallout on perceptions of deservingness for different types of social rights. This project has two main axis: the first one study deservingness perceptions regarding two different domains of state help (services in the health care sector and access to social benefits for self-employed) and the second one extend the deservingness framework to study wether particular groups of mobile individuals should be entitled to be (internationally) mobile and more specifically to be allowed to access to Switzerland.
