Project The National Institute for Research on the Socioeconomic Impact of Diseases and Systemic Risks (SYRI) was supported by the program EXCELES.
The project focuses on social science and related disciplines specifically targeting the social and economic impacts of systemic health risks, including similar risks of pandemics of the COVID-19 type, i.e. collectively focused on the issue of:
1. the functioning of public administration, communication of public administration with the public and the behaviour of society in situations of health risk,
2. the effectiveness of health care, lifestyle and other socio-economic determinants of health risks and
3. economic recovery from health or security crises in terms of economic policy, labour market and unemployment, human capital and education, or addressing the increase in poverty.

The upswing in finance in recent decades has led to rising inequality, but do downswings in finance lead to a symmetric decline in inequality? We analyze the asymmetry of the effect of ups and downs in finance, and the effect of increased capital requirements and the bonus cap on national earnings inequality. We use administrative employer–employee-linked data from 1990 to 2019 for 12 countries and data from bank reports, from 2009 to 2017 in 13 European countries.
The analysis is based on a sample of 1015 citizens from Czechia. The cognitive energy literacy index (CELI), based on the knowledge of the energy mix in electricity production and the knowledge of the import/export of electricity in Czechia, is constructed in this article. The research aims to answer the following questions: What is the level of CELI within the population of Czechia? To what extent do the selected socio-demographic indicators affect the CELI?
Covid-19 významně ohrozil nejen zdraví obyvatelstva a fungování zdravotnictví, ale i mnoho dalších oblastí lidského života. Epidemiologická opatření narušila běžné fungování společnosti a odrazila se i ve fungování kriminality a bezpečnostních složek. Proměny a dopady těchto omezení a opatření, zejména omezení pohybu (tzv. lockdowny), dokumentuje zpráva pomocí porovnání struktury a intenzity kriminality "před" obdobím covidu (2018-2019), "během" něj (2020) a "po" něm (2021- 2022).
There is a significant amount of evidence highlighting the health, wellbeing and social benefits of gardening during previous periods of crises. These benefits were also evident during the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper presents a narrative review exploring gardening during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic to understand the different forms of gardening that took place during this crisis and key elements of this activity.
