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