Ivan and Mariia presented initial results of a project “How do young families appear and live in modern Russia? Comparison of secular families and priests’ families”.
In turn, researchers of Family Studies and Research University Centre gave several presentations on their current research projects: Relational Reflexivity and young couples (Matteo Moscatelli, Elisabetta Carrà); Fathers and divorce (Alice Zanchettin); Family-work balance (Sara Mazzucchelli), Intergenerational solidarity (Donatella Bramanti, Giovanna Rossi); Psychological projects on couples (Raffaella Iafrate, Anna Bertoni and others).
Participation in the workshop of members of “Sociology of religion” research laboratory was an opportunity to discuss the “pilot” interviews of the project “How do young families appear and live in modern Russia? Comparison of secular families and priests’ families”, to compare them with a similar Italian research project, to discuss methodological issues and perspectives for further collaboration. In addition, during a meeting with Giovanna Rossi, Sara Mazzucchelli and Giancarlo Rovati, researchers discussed a possibility of using the future wave of The European Values Study (EVS) for conducting a comparative cross-country study on family and religion.
