Modernization and Variations in Emancipative Values in European Societies in 1995-2008: Test of Inglehart’s socialization hypothesis (ongoing)

Abstract:

The research proposal is aimed to reveal patterns in variations of emancipative values in European societies and test Inglehart’s socialization hypothesis. Modernization model suggested by C.Welzel, R.Inglehart and H-D.Klingemann (2003) is used as a theoretical framework for the research project.

According to this model emancipative and self-expression values have to appear due to the growth of resources and economic security. To explain the mechanism of this value shift R.Inglehart also suggested a socialization hypothesis (Inglehart 1990).

Since East European societies and especially post-soviet countries differ from more developed societies in terms of emancipative and self-expression values (Тихонова 2008; 2011; Magun, Rudnev, Schmidt 2012; Магун, Руднев 2012), the research project is focused on a particular part of the modernization model testing whether emancipative values trend, namely substitution materialist priorities by post-materialist, exists in East European societies compared to West European societies (old EU members) and whether Inglehart’s socialization hypothesis is valid to explain such a trend. 

The dataset for analysis consists of integrated World Values Survey data (waves 3, 4, 5: WVS1994-1999, WVS1999-2004, WVS2005-2007) and European Values Survey data (waves 3, 4: EVS1999-2001, EVS2008-2010) with the matching questions comprising the period from 1995 till 2008 in 16 European societies (overall 78501 respondents). Method of linear decomposition of a trend (Firebaugh 1989; 1992) is used for data analysis.
