How different nations view the world and themselves

Do you stereotype other nationalities? What do you think other nationalities think of you? As Part of Social Science Week ESRC, the Academy of Learned Societies for the Social Sciences, the Social Research Association and The City University have teamed up to host a lecture by Professor Roger Jowell AcSS.

The founding director of the European Social Survey, Professor Jowell will trace its origins, explain its purpose and outline the uses and abuses of comparing attitudes across nations. He will underline the increasing importance of such research for a better understanding of what unites and divides different countries.

Professor Jowell will also discuss the formidable difficulties of taking equivalent measures within 27 countries, each speaking a different language and each steeped in its own cultural imperatives and methodological ‘habits’.

Based on his experience with a number of multinational surveys, he will outline the sorts of measures that can help to mitigate some of the most daunting problems.
