The introduction to the project is available in this short video. 


On 16 November 2021, the British Academy announced the recipients of the research grants for the COVID-19 recovery program. STRIVE was selected together with six other projects. Each one of these projects explores cultural, social and political aspects of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in one of the G7 countries.


On 26 November 2021, the questionnaire has gone live. 

If you live in Rome or Emilia Romagna after migrating to Italy, we would like to know your experience of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign, please fill in the questionnaire.  Thank you in advance! 

If you work with, employ, or know people who moved to Rome and Emilia Romagna from outside Italy,  share with them the link
