IFN researchers Niclas Berggren and Therese Nilsson have been interviewed by Al-Ittihad Newspaper, based in United Arab Emirates.  Niclas Berggren and Therese Nilsson are doing research on tolerance and social values. They are referring to their papers "Does Economic Freedom Foster Tolerance" and "Globalization and the Transmission of Social Values: The Case of Tolerance". When asked how to promote tolerance in a society, they reply:

– /.../ We believe the most important thing to institute is the rule of law, i.e. a high-quality, effective, non-corrupt and impartial legal system. Then our findings suggest that a policy securing low and stable inflation and policies that increase economic and social openness to other countries can increase tolerance as well."
