Quality of society
The quality of society has a major impact on well-being and quality of life. In the aftermath of the global economic crisis, trust among Europeans in society and its institutions declined, causing concerns about economic and social insecurity, perceived inequalities, societal tensions and lack of fairness. With the economic recovery, trust in institutions has also recovered. However, improving the social fabric and citizen engagement remain significant for both individual quality of life and resilience of society as a whole.
