Returning to Life: How to Help 'Troubled' Teens Get a Fresh Start and Integrate into Society

Some children who don’t go to school and commit crimes manage to reintegrate into society by learning new mores and lifestyles. But others only appear to adapt, becoming ‘outsiders’ again the minute they leave the school grounds, going back to the same risky life on the streets. The two approaches offer youngsters very different opportunities in life. This IQ.HSE article, that draws on research by sociologist Irina Lisovskaya, explores how to help such youth integrate into society and learn to communicate with others.

The Trauma of Chernobyl: Why Our Collective Memory of Disasters Tends to Fade with Time

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster. The event recedes ever further into the past, but the legacy of the trauma it caused endures.
