Abstract:

Societal Anomie in Slovakia: Evolution and Cross-National Comparison. This article presents basic findings of the societal anomie research studies (Model 1) carried out in Slovakia in 2001, 2008, and 2016. Primary attention is paid to the changes in the degree of societal anomie, as well as the challenges related to their interpretation. They are primarily caused by the fact that a critical, threshold value of societal anomie is not yet known. It also presents a model of perception of anomie (Model 2), which formed the basis of an international research carried out in 28 countries. The most significant similarities and differences between both theoretical models, which determine the potential and limitations in the comparison of their findings, are analyzed. This comparison, albeit limited, is particularly useful because it provides a reference framework for assessing the degree of overall anomie in Slovakia. Sociológia 2018, Vol. 50 (No. 3: 311-334)
