The article presents a report on the Eighteenth Roundtable of heads and members of Departments of Social Psychology and Departments affiliated to socio-psychological disciplines of the Universities of Moscow and the Moscow region, devoted to the theme «Social and Cultural Context: Challenges to Social Psychology». This Roundtable continues the tradition of regular Roundtables on key issues in socio-psychological science and teaching socio-psychological disciplines. The Department of Social Psychology of the Faculty of Psychology of the Lomonosov Moscow State University initiated this tradition in 2008, and then the Roundtables were held at different Departments of Social Psychology of the Universities of Moscow and the Moscow region. Since the beginning mostly heads of Departments of Social Psychology participated in the Roundtables, but the composition of participants has been significantly expanded in 2017. Now the Roundtables will unite the entire socio-psychological community of scientists and teachers of the Universities of Moscow and the Moscow region. The article has two parts: a brief description of the history and origin of the tradition of regular Roundtables on the socio-psychological issues and an informative report about the last meeting on April 18, 2017 at the Faculty of Psychology of the Lomonosov Moscow State University.
