Values systems of the citizens and socio-economic conditions - challenges from democratisation for the eu-enlargement

Objective

The proposed project compares political values and attitudes of the citizens of 11 European nations. The main hypothesis is that hardships of social and economic transformation in Central and Eastern Europe lead to political attitudes that endanger the process of democratisation and further development of the European social culture. The project includes European nations where the transformation from an authoritarian to a democratic system was successful (Germany, Greece, Spain), where the transition process is advanced (Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia), and where the transition process is still in the initial phase (Albania, Russia). As scientific approach political culture theory is used. The main database is a survey. In 2000 it was conducted in Central and Eastern Europe. Comparative analyses will be undertaken with advanced statistical methods.
