Social Values and Norms Changing the Development of Societies: Evidence from the World Values Survey

Open Panel
In Person

The panel is aimed at exploring the ways how the World Values Survey – the world’s largest social science survey program – can contribute to the academic research on value change, convergence and divergence of value systems, development of the postmaterialist theory of value change, and also how WVS findings can be used to develop social, economic and political policies regulating our everyday life. WVS data constituting the world’s largest survey data-base in social sciences, uses an extensive set of several hundred indicators and allows to analyze value systems and norms in over 120 countries, including analysis in over-time perspective for 1981-2022. Such topics like tolerance and social exclusion, social and ethical norms, functioning of systems of public life, security, migration, civic engagement, democracy, political participation and the ways how WVS data can contribute to the enhancement of social theory and research in these and other fields, are in the center of the discussion of this panel.
