Lay summary

Die European Values Study (Europäische Wertestudie) ist eine wissenschaftsorientierte europäische Umfrage, welche sich mit Werten beschäftigt, und wird alle 9 Jahre durchgeführt. Die Schweiz hatte sich im Jahr 1990 beteiligt, war 2008 wieder unter der Leitung von FORS eingestiegen, und wird auch bei der fünfte Ausgabe im 2017 dabei sein. Im 2008 fand die Studie in fast sämtlichen europäischen Ländern statt.

Dabei stehen vor allem zwei Fragen im Vordergrund:

  • Gibt es  gemeinsame  europäische Werte?

  • Hat der Wertewandel der vergangenen 30 Jahre eher eine  kulturelle Annäherung bewirkt oder findet vielmehr eine  individuelle, länderspezifische Entwicklung statt?

Im Rahmen dieser Studie werden die Meinungen, die Überzeugungen und die Haltungen der Europäer zu den Themenkreisen Familie, Arbeit und Freizeit, Religion, Politik sowie zu verschiedenen aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Fragen untersucht. Befragt werden in einem persönlichen Interview jeweils mindestens 1200 Personen aus einerZufallsstichprobe der gesamten Schweizer Wohnbevölkerung ab 18 Jahren. Die Daten werden frei auf http://www.gesis.org/evs zur Verfügung gestellt.

L’European Values Study (Enquête européenne sur les valeurs) étudie tous les 9 ans les valeurs les plus caractéristiques des pays d'Europe. Introduite en 1981, elle réalise sa cinquième édition en 2017.
Lay summary

L’European Values Study (Enquête européenne sur les valeurs) est une enquête scientifique européenne centrée sur les valeurs, réalisée tous les 9 ans. La Suisse qui avait participé en 1990, a reconduit l’expérience en 2008 sous la direction de FORS, qui se chargera aussi de la cinquième édition en 2017. En 2008 pratiquement l'ensemble des pays européens y avait participé.

Elle se pose principalement les deux questions suivantes:

  • Les Européens partagent-ils des valeurs communes?

  • Les changements survenus au cours des 30 dernières années vont-ils dans la direction d'un rapprochement des cultures ou, à l'inverse, chaque pays évolue-t-il de façon spécifique?

Dans ce cadre, elle va explorer les opinions, croyances et attitudes des Européens à propos de la famille, du travail et des loisirs, de la religion, de la politique ainsi que de divers sujets sociaux d'actualité. A chaque édition, au moins 1200 personnes tirées d’un échantillon aléatoire de la population résidente dès l’âge de 18 ans sont interrogées. Les données sont ensuite mises à disposition sur http://www.gesis.org/evs.

Abstract

The European Values Study (EVS) was one of the first established collaborative projects in the social sciences in Europe. Since 1981, every nine years a large academic-driven survey is carried out simultaneously in a growing number of European countries. The aims are to: - provide valuable data about the values of populations in European countries, allowing for comparative research on relevant economic and cultural units; - measure social change and its effects, such as the process of globalisation and individualisation, by repeating two-thirds of the questions from one wave to the next; - deepen knowledge about each participating country, allowing for cross-country comparisons and showing convergences and divergences; - offer to the scientific community a platform to freely and quickly access these data and exchange about related research.In the fourth wave in 2008, the EVS achieved an almost perfect coverage of Europe with 47 participating countries and over 70’000 interviews. The Swiss participation was coordinated by FORS. The present application aims to ensure the preparation of the fifth wave in Switzerland, to be fielded in early 2017.
