Head of the laboratory's research interests: Social changes, values, gender role attitudes, nationalism, happiness and subjective well-being, political elites, cross-cultural studies

Quote by the head of the laboratory: In a favorable environment people shift to values of the higher level – for example, they become more open, rely each other more, it is easier for them to form economic unions. Corporations and innovations start appearing as they are not afraid to lose money. Freedom, both economic and individual, leads to innovations. If we look into the technological aspect, into the aspect of the high science, many countries now are far ahead of us. And this is also thanks to values.
