Social Trends Institute Reports: January 2017

As we leave 2016 behind us, we begin a new year full of challenges and uncertainties. The world is changing fast, and Social Trends Institute intends to study these changing scenarios to better understand them. STI Academic Leader Michael Barnett expounds on the Trump phenomenon, and student Marta Castillo analyses the effects of divorce on society.  These are just two of the contributions STI made last month to the deliberation on this liquid modernity, as Zygmunt Bauman called it.  

We also take a look back at this year's work, all of which was possible thanks to the collaboration of experts, students, and all of you .  

Happy 2017!
