Values in Transtiton? ― Ronald Inglehart gave an interview to the Russia Today TV channel (23.04.2017)

Martin Luther King famously said that the arc of history is bending toward justice - a statement sometimes dismissed as too idealistic but one that may actually have a basis in social science. More than thirty years of research by Ronald Inglehart suggest that, in the long run, democratisation, with its attendant social and legal justice, is inevitable. But how long is that long run?

Call for papers: New Nationalisms: Sources, Agendas, Languages (Wrocław, Poland, September 25-27)

This conference seeks to confront the discourse of affective mobilization propagating anti-EU and anti-immigration policies in many European countries, with its opponent, the discourse of civic ethos and cosmopolitanism. How did it happen that xenophobia and anti-European sentiment have become a vocal presence in public discourse? The organizers hope that the conference will shed some light on how a refurbished nationalism has become central to the new visions of what has become a functioning oxymoron in Central Europe: the non-liberal democracy. DEADLINE: March 31, 2017.
