This project is based at the Department of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and embedded in the Political Sociology Program Group at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research. We work together with the Amsterdam Municipal Health Services (GGD Amsterdam) and are financed by the Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Development (ZonMW, Project 8560002). Our research in California, USA has been made possible with the help of the Center for the Study of Democracy at the University of California, Irvine.
