TÁRKI European Social Report 2009

TÁRKI European Social Report 2009 cover This book, the second in the series, seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the similarities and differences between the European societies of the enlarged European Union. The report concentrates on the perceptions, opinions and attitudes of Europeans. From the wide range of potential issues we selected those fields that are most relevant to economic activity.

The analyses included in this book were prepared by TÁRKI Social Research Institute Inc., as part of a research programme entitled "The Social and Cultural Conditions of Economic Growth". The research programme included, among other projects, an empirical study called "The Normative Framework of Market Economy", as well as the Hungarian part of the fifths wave of "pdfWorld Values Survey". The research was conducted by Istvn Gyrgy Tth with the assistance of Tams Keller.
