Into the second year of the pandemic: What has changed for young people in Luxembourg?
Researchers from the University of Luxembourg have just published 2021’s preliminary results of a representative survey of young people and COVID-19 (YAC). This report is a follow-up to the 2020 publication on “Young People and COVID-19”. The YAC project monitors the situation of young people in Luxembourg throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and analyses its short-, medium- and long-term consequences.

The IMISCOE 2021 Conference
This year’s IMISCOE-Conference was hosted by the FHSE, where migration-related research, is organized in the Key Research Area Migration and Inclusive Societies (MIS). From July 7 to 9, 2021, the conference offered a deeper focus into people’s migration experiences by foregrounding how migration is connected to culture and language.

What is
Humanities.lu?

Through humanities and social sciences, we learn about our cultural heritage, about the foundations of society and the ongoing construction of history. We become aware of the constitutive force of language, of diverging cultures and identities, and how social structures develop into mental structures. But the ‘soft’ sciences are not focussing on the past only. In various ways, they are also engaged with the future, they extend the scope of the thinkable and inform ongoing cultural processes. Their role is to reveal alternatives in dealing with current issues and future challenges.

At the University of Luxembourg, The Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences addresses these complex challenges with an interdisciplinary approach. The purpose of this website is to show the major outcomes of this work by presenting the Faculty’s six main areas of research: Education & Social Work, Migration, Behavioural & Cognitive Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences, Geography & Spatial Planning. In all of these areas, researchers tackle the challenges the Luxembourgish society is facing today: How can we belong? How shall we live? How can we shape our future? They all contribute to the common goal of an inclusive, open and resourceful society. They show that #HumanitiesMatter.
