RESISTIRÉ survey mobile app

How has the Covid-19 pandemic impacted you?

The RESISTIRÉ team is releasing a new mobile application-based survey to collect quantitative indicators on the attitudes and experiences of people during the pandemic.

The objective of the RESISTIRÉ app is to help measure and monitor the economic, social and environmental impacts of health policies in Europe. We will examine how COVID-19 and its policy responses have potentially exposed groups in Europe to socio-economic risk factors related to identity features (including, race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and other identity markers.)

The app, developed jointly by researchers from the Institute for Ethical AI and the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice at Oxford Brookes University, is free to download on iOS and Android devices. Any adult residing in the EU27, UK, Turkey, Serbia, and Iceland is welcome to participate.


Why participate in this survey?

Survey responses help increase knowledge and understanding of existing problems, as well as current and future priorities and solutions with COVID-19 policy responses. Participants contribute towards developing future policies with the aim of reducing inequalities arising during the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery.


How does it work?

After downloading the app and validating the participation consent form, participants will be asked a series of questions about their socio-demographic background, which will take no more than 15 minutes. Participants are then asked to complete a survey of no more than 20 minutes on their attitudes on COVID-19 pandemic responses.

Occasional push notifications will be sent to participants when we have new questions that would benefit from new insights. These follow-up questions help us monitor if responses are changing over the project period and allow us to focus on and develop deeper understanding of topics of increasing importance over the course of the pandemic recovery. Participation can be withdrawn at any time in the survey.


What kind of questions are asked?

The survey investigates how the pandemic has impacted the following areas of study:

  • Gender-based violence
  • Work and labour market
  • Gender pay and pension gaps
  • Gender care gap
  • Decision-making and politics
  • Environmental justice
  • Human and fundamental rights

Questions may include:

‘Compared to before the COVID-19 pandemic, did you have sufficient access to childcare facilities during school/nursery closures?’

‘Did you work from home at any time DURING the COVID-19 pandemic ?’

‘In general, how common do you think that domestic violence against women is in your country?’

What are the expected outcomes?

All findings from the RESISTIRÉ app survey will be shared through reports and interactive data visualisations showing how people in different European countries are experiencing the pandemic. Our hope is that this survey contributes towards developing future policies with the aim of reducing inequalities arising during the COVID-19 pandemic.
