In the study Maria Simonova described foreigners, to one degree or another, trusting the judicial system of their country. Respondents from countries with a republican form of government trust it more than students from countries with other forms of government.
“Students from European countries are convinced that the police in their countries act strictly within the law, while students from Latin America are convinced that the police in their countries exceed their authority from time to time,” said Maria Simonova.
Studies show that in the modern world the topic of public security, for which citizens are willing to sacrifice part of their personal freedoms, regardless of the characteristics of their political system and culture, can become the “starting point” of international socio-political discourse.
The report of Maria Simonova was recognized as the best at the conference.
“This presentation makes a huge contribution to the agenda of today's conference, the topic is important and should be discussed further,” said Edward Bays, Chairman of the Conference.
The XI International Conference of Applied Research in Politics, Economics, Social Sciences and Technology (ARICPEST) 2019 was held on July 8-9, in London (Great Britain). Speakers from Bangladesh, Great Britain, Georgia, Hong Kong, India, Kuwait, Pakistan, Russia, USA and South Korea took part in the conference.
A chemist from RUDN University has developed a catalyst for the production of eugenol acetate, a substance that destroys the larvae of mosquitoes transmitting dangerous diseases, being a safe chemical for human health.
RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.
A RUDN chemist has synthesized a catalyst for the production of gamma-valerolactone — an energy-intensive “green” biofuel. The catalyst based on zirconium dioxide and zeolite has shown high efficiency in converting the waste of wood plant materials — methyl levulinate — to gamma-valerolactone.
