Сравнительные социальные исследования
This work aims to understand the underlying connection between value systems and the rise of demonstrations and/or conflicts. For this purpose, data from the Cross-National Time-Series (CNTS) Data Archive and the World Value Survey (WVS) has been used, and subjected to Goldstone & Co's Regime Classification Model, Inglehart's Material-Post Material Index classification, among others. The social sphere has been examined as a complex system influenced by many factors, those under examination being Ideologies, Cultures and other value-shaping ecosystems. The use and role of social media as a mobilizing structure has also been examined. Finally, through the use of linear models, some interesting findings emerge as to the factors influencing protests/demonstrations.
