Ekaterina Lytkina's talk at the IKG Forum on Conflict and Violence
On October, 28th research assistant of LCSR Ekaterina Lytkina presented results of the project carried out in LCSR «Anomie: Between Normlessness and Cognitive Disorientation» at the Forum on Conflict and Violence held by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research on Conflict and Violence (IKG) at the University Bielefeld.
The topic of anomie is one of the important ones at the institute. Anomie is operationalized as cognitive disorientation and was included in cross-sectional and panel data within the project Group Focused Emnity in Germany (2002-2012) and in a study of eight European countries (2008). The report of Ekaterina Lytkina showed new horizons of research of anomie and caused vivid interest and a large discussion. Besides, possibilities of joint project, also aimed at finding the optimal indicators for anomie research, are being discussed.
