Welcome to the LIVES wiki-glossary!

This wiki is dedicated to helping researchers in the social sciences, junior or advanced, who need to have an overview of the critical concepts associated with research on vulnerability in a life course perspective. This initiative aims to make interdisciplinary research more straightforward. With over 30 central concepts described and explained, it includes terms such as vulnerability, trajectories, reserves, cumulative (dis)advantages, resilience, longitudinal data (retrospective and prospective) and many more.

It is a project of the Centre LIVES
Initially reserved to LIVES members only, the wiki glossary is now open to the general public for consultation.
If you wish to add a new definition on the life course and vulnerability, suggestions and contributions are possible by sending us an email to lives.scientific@unil.ch

Please, cite in the APA standard as reference for any use of the wiki-glossary.
