Chapter Summary

The founding fathers of the European Values Study (EVS) could not have imagined that their initiative would develop into such a leading project on human values, covering not only all countries of the European continent, but also numerous countries in various of the worlds major cultural zones. The first surveys that took place in 1981 in the ten countries of the then European Community were in subsequent years also carried out in 14 countries outside the European Community. In order to track possible changes and to explore whether the values, beliefs, attitudes and opinions of the Europeans are converging or diverging; the surveys were repeated in 1990. The collection of survey data in the 1990 EVS enabled for the first time in history empirical testing of such claims and investigation of the differences and similarities in basic human values across Europe: West and East.
