Human Flourishing in Institutions

This programme aims to research flourishing and virtuousness in life, work and institutions. The programme investigates satisfaction with life (and various life domains), positive emotions, strengths and virtues, engagement, self-determination, meaning and purpose, positive relations, harmony, positive leadership, a positive lens on problems and challenges, as well as positive leadership and institutions. Antecedents and outcomes of flourishing, happiness, and virtuousness of individuals and institutions are studied. Furthermore, interventions to optimise flourishing, happiness, and virtuousness are developed and evaluated.
