The sub-programme investigates satisfaction with life (and various life domains), positive emotions, strengths and virtues, engagement, self-determination, meaning and purpose, positive relations, harmony, positive leadership, a positive lens on problems and challenges, as well as positive leadership and institutions. Antecedents and outcomes of flourishing, happiness, and virtuousness of individuals and institutions are studied.
