With the help of several research modules of the prestigious ISSP programme of cross-national surveys the project explores the perception of societal changes in times of crisis. This will be possible with four ISSP modules (Health, Family, National identity and Citizenship) on two levels: a) the new modules will enable cross-temporal comparisons with previous research rounds. b) data from forty ISSP member countries will enable to place the attitudinal shifts in the Slovak society into an international context.

An integral part of the presented project are two activities that are important not only for sociology, but, in a wider sense, also for other social sciences in Slovakia:

1) the continuation of Slovak participation in the ISSP, which enables to actively participate in the decisions forming the future of the programme, the research topic and the research modules. The participation of Slovakia in the international research space helps to enforce topics and views relevant for the Slovak perspective. Slovak participation in the ISSP also ensures the presence of our country in the analyses of the international researchers, which would not be possible without collected survey data.

2) the expansion and personal stabilization of the Slovak Archive of Social Data (SASD). The archive grants access to data files not only to Slovak research public. Data collected within this project will be an important enrichment of this service for the scientific community.
