Vom 28.-30. Oktober 2015 waren ForscherInnen der „European Values Study“  aus rund 40 verschiedenen Nationen - von Armenien bis Island -  zu Gast in Wien und haben über die unterschiedlichen Prozessphasen der nächsten Erhebungswelle im Jahr 2017 beraten. Dazu eingeladen hat die neu gegründete Arbeitsgemeinschaft „Interdisziplinäre Werteforschung“ ( unter Leitung von a.O. Uni-Prof. Dr. Christian Friesl) – eine Kooperation der Fakultät für Sozialwissenschaften und der Katholisch-Theologischen Fakultät.

Die European Values Study, die seit 1980 mit einem einheitlichen Konzept Einstellungen und Haltungen zu Werten in europäischen und angrenzenden Ländern erhebt, gibt Auskunft zu den Themenfeldern Arbeit und Freizeit, Familie und Freundeskreis, Religion sowie Politik. Gesamtziel ist es, den möglichen Wandel bezüglich der Werthaltungen und Lebenskonzepte der EuropäerInnen zu untersuchen.

Wir bedanken uns bei allen TeilnehmerInnen der Generalversammlung für die interessanten Gespräche und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen im Frühling 2016 in Warschau.
