The Third International Sociological Conference ‘Following Grushin’ was held in Moscow on February 28 - March 1, 2013. At this event NGO ‘Eurasian Monitor’ and the HSE Laboratory for Comparative Social Research organized a joint session ‘General and Special. Similarities and Differences of Social Attitudes in the Post-socialist World’.

Igor Zadorin, director of ‘Eurasian Monitor’ project and Eduard Ponarin, head of LCSR were the moderators of this session.

More than 10 presentations were made by researchers from Russia, Poland and Ukraine, including many members of our Laboratory.

Eduard Ponarin presented some results of the research project ‘Modernization and Well-Being in Russia’, which was carried out jointly with Ronald Inglehart and Roberto Foa. Anna Nemirovskaya also reported on the results of the collective LCSR project ‘Internal Empires: Social and Political Cultures of the Frontier’.

Other participants of the session also presented very interesting projects. For example, Dmitri Dmitruk, director of the research project ‘Social Monitoring’, gave a presentation showing that people's satisfaction depends not on the absolute level of GDP, but on the dynamics of its growth.

Since all the participants were involved in big collective projects, there was not enough time to share all the significant results during this conference. However, the full presentations will be published shortly on the website of the conference organizer - The Russian Public Opinion Research Center.
