On citizens’ opinion about transformation of Slovak society

On the 1st June, 2018, Grigorij Mesežnikov attended an interdisciplinary international conference held in Budapest on the occasion of the inauguration of John Harsanyi Center and Archive for Social Studies (JHCASS). Co-organizer of the event dedicated to economist, mathematician and social scientist, the winner of the Nobel Prize John (János) Harsanyi, was the PADE Foundation. John Harsányi (1920-2000), who emigrated from Hungary to the West in 1950, gained respect in the scientific community for his innovative approach of using the elements of game theory in economic analysis (for example, in evaluating the so-called strategic interactions). 

In his contribution, IVO President addressed the reflection of the process of democratization, social reforms and European integration after removal of the communist regime by Slovakia’s population. He focused on three key areas – economy, political democracy, and foreign policy, pointing to factors that influenced the formation of citizens’ views on society’s development. 

Political scientists from Hungary, USA, France, Great Britain, Spain, Romania, Mexico and Bangladesh took part in the conference.
