“Students from European countries are convinced that the police in their countries act strictly within the framework of the law,” - Maria Simonova, Director of the Educational and Scientific Institute of Comparative Educational Policy of RUDN University
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.

A geneticist from RUDN University studied the effect of Bifidobacterium (intestinal bacteria) on the inflammatory process and discovered that their surface protein is capable of stopping excessive or uncontrollable inflammation, like the one observed in COVID-19 patients. A fragment of this protein can be used as an anti-inflammatory medication when treating coronavirus and other diseases.
