Ronald F. Inglehart Laboratory for Comparative Social Research

The Laboratory for Comparative Social Research (LCSR) was established in the Higher School of Economics, a National Research University, in November 2010 when professors Ronald Inglehart and Eduard Ponarin were awarded a mega-grant from the Russian government. The focus of our research is on comparative studies of social change – the analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinal data based on World Values Survey (WVS) data. LCSR is the only official partner and representative of the World Values Survey and European Values Survey in Russia, as well as a partner of the Eurasian monitor. In September 2020, by the decision of the HSE Academic Council, the Laboratory was named after its co-founder, Ronald Franklin Inglehart. In 2021, the Laboratory was headed by Boris Sokolov.
