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 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. Since 2024 the Laboratory is headed by Anna Almakaeva.
