Manuscripts go through peer reviewing process.
The texts present the authors’ views on important issues in the social sciences and humanities; they do not necessarily contain the results of the authors’ empirical research.

The text should be in the range of 5 400 – 36 000 characters, including a list of references and footnotes, and must contain an abstract in English of 200-300 words and 5-7 keywords.
