RUDN University’s professors participated in Applied Research International Conference on Politics, Economics, Society & Technology (ARICPEST) July 2019, London, U.K.

RUDN University’s professors participated in Applied Research International Conference on Politics, Economics, Society & Technology (ARICPEST) July 2019, London, U.K.

Tatyana Larina, Senior Lecturer, Department of Sociology, RUDN Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, presented the study “Death Penalty and Euthanasia in the Context of Tradition and Liberalism” at the XI International Conference of Applied Research in Politics, Economics, Social Sciences and Technology in London (Great Britain) (ARICPEST) 2019.

In the study, Tatyana Larina was able to describe the views of students from around the world on the death penalty and euthanasia thus identifying regions with liberal and conservative views in this context.

Tatyana Larina: “The most liberal regions are neutral or positive towards euthanasia. Part of these views are explained by religion. More conservative views on euthanasia are characteristic of representatives of the countries of Asia, the CIS and Latin America, and liberal - of Europeans. In this sense, Russians are showing a compromise.”

The study emphasizes that most students of Islam support a ban on euthanasia. Foreigners who live in countries where the death penalty is implemented consider this to be correct. At the same time, students from countries where it is prohibited, believe that there is nothing good in the death penalty.

 “Next, we have to establish the reasons that affect certain views on the death penalty and euthanasia in the world,” said Tatyana Larina.

Maria Simonova, Director of the Educational and Scientific Institute of Comparative Educational Policy at RUDN University presented a study “Trust in the judiciary and state systems as the main characteristics of civil and civil liberties in modern society” at the XI International Conference of Applied Research in Politics, Economics, Social Sciences and Technology (ARICPEST) 2019 in London.

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.
