The contemporary world calls for new and genuine broad theoretical bases and specifically targeted strategies for resolutions of conflicts emerging at the level of human attitude towards the society (culture, ethics, and politics) on the one hand and towards environment on the other. Considering the situation, the Institute IRRIS is dedicated to studying historical, anthropological, philosophical, sociological, politological, linguistical, legal, geographical and other broader social aspects that will enable us to detect crucial or pragmatic points or developmental shifts that have throughout history endowed the resolutions of frictions and conflicts between social actors that enabled the growth of all kinds of civilisation environments. In order to reach this goal in contemporary society, such interdisciplinary comparative research of social dynamics includes studies of the complexity of the cultural heritage as the key component in the attitude of human towards the environment.
