Case Study Pitch

Prof. Paul is co-author of InsSciDE case study n°5.4, Europeanizing Vaccination Policy: Towards a better understanding of “Health Data Diplomacy” in Europe. Read the pitch for this case study here.

This pitch outlines how case study 5.4 seeks to shed light on how data production and exchange on vaccination rates are organized and orchestrated, but also resisted in other places. Key quote: ’The overarching objective of the research is to analyse contemporary policy developments at the EU level. The research team at the University of Vienna specifically explores national and international data exchanges regarding vaccination rates and the possibility of convergence of vaccination guidelines across countries.’
