|Summary:||Who are the Europeans? How do they think about life after death, work, sex, euthanasia, immigration or freedom? What traditions do they cherish, and which modern values gain ground? This second Atlas of European Values summarizes the beliefs of Europeans in almost two hundred informative graphs, charts and maps.<br> <br> <br> <br> This Atlas is the result of the European Values Study, a research project that has measured values and beliefs throughout Europe since the 1980s. Today, the study spans a full generation, revealing value changes on topics such as homosexuality and working moms, but also demonstrating firm European traditions in democracy and rejection of bribes.<br> <br> <br> <br> The unique Atlas of European Values covers all European nations from Iceland to Turkey, and from Portugal to Russia. It graphically illustrates the rich diversity of values and beliefs of the more than 800 million Europeans living inside and outside the European Union today.<br> <br>|
|Item Description:||Presents a selection of the data from the European Values Study surveys and shows the data from the latest 2008 wave (the fourth wave) to detect trends of stability or change in value patterns since the 1980s. Findings were compared with the data of the previous EVS waves, the first in 1981, the second in 1990, the third in 1999. The process was guided and monitored by the EVS Methodology Group and involved the cooperation of many others.
