This research focuses on the transmission and acquisition of social conservatism, understood broadly as any sociocultural system of values that promotes strict adherence to social norms, adherence to conventions and is characterized by group conformity and collectivism. Thus it includes also related concepts of traditionalism, religious fundamentalism, ethnocentrism, etc. Multidisciplinary approaches are welcomed.
