VALUES IN TRANSITION? Interview with Ronald Inglehart, Founding President of the World Values Survey
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? Ronald Inglehart, Academic Supervisor of Laboratory for Comparative Social Research at the Higher School of Economics (HSE) is giving his thoughts about this in an interview during the XVIII April International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development.
