Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the question of whether and, if so, how value patterns have changed in post-communist Central and Eastern Europe. Have these value patterns developed in a direction similar to that in the West, or are they in a class of their own? And, what is the cultural trajectory of the West? The chapter begins by elaborating on the main features of the process of individualization and by formulating several hypotheses about its consequences for peoples basic value orientations. It then describes the survey data, measures and analytical strategy. Finally the chapter presents the results of the analyses and draw conclusions. It focuses on value changes in Central and Eastern European societies and investigated whether modernization in general and individualization in particular have had similar consequences for peoples world views in this part of Europe as is found in Western societies.

Keywords: analytical strategy; Central Europe; Eastern Europe; hypotheses; individualization; modernization; value changes
