About Us

Welcome to the website of the Laboratory for Comparative Social Research!

The Laboratory for Comparative Social Research (LCSR) was established within the Higher School of Economics, a National Research University, in November 2010, when professors Ronald Inglehart and Eduard Ponarin were awarded a mega-grant by the government of the Russian Federation. According to Resolution No. 220, the purpose of the grant is ‘to attract leading scientists to Russian institutions of higher learning’ (contract number 11.G34.31.0024; purpose: economics, sociology, and international research).

The LCSR aims at developing rigorous quantitative and comparative (cross-country and cross-regional) studies in Russian social science. The joint effort of international and Russian scholars within the Laboratory will bring comparative sociology in the Higher School of Economics to the forefront of international research. The focus of research will be on comparative studies of social change – the analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinal data.
