A Nine-Country Survey of Youth in Europe: Selected Findings and Issues
Kay, William K.; Ziebertz, Hans-Georg
British Journal of Religious Education, v28 n2 p119-129 Mar 2006
A nine-country survey of the life orientations, values and institutional trust of 8948 young people at the upper end of the secondary school age range was set up at the University of Wurzburg in the year 2000. Key findings demonstrate that these young people value personal autonomy and are orientated to success in their professional lives and that they especially trust human rights and environmental groups. Religion is associated positively with humanitarianism and in some countries negatively with modernity. These findings provide an indication of the typical life stances of future opinion-formers and illustrate methodological issues thrown up by international research. (Contains 1 table and 5 notes.)
