EVS2017: Results in Austria

On 18 July, the Austrian team of EVS discussed the main results of the study carried out in Austria during the event for presenting the publication of the book “Quo vadis, Österreich? Werwandel zwischen 1990 und 2018”, which analyzes the change over time in the Austrian society between 1990 and 2018. Among the many aspects, the scholars pointed out the increase of the approval for democracy, alongside the increase of secularisation and pluralisation. Work loses importance, while family and leisure time remain important.

“Christians and Muslims make little difference”

An article on Religion ORF.at gives evidence to some of the results discussed during the event presenting the book “Quo vadis, Österreich? Werwandel zwischen 1990 und 2018” on July 18, 2019. In particular, the fact that religious lines of conflict between the “strong Muslim block and the weakening Christian block” cannot be empirically proven in Austria in this way.

According to the value researcher Regina Polak EVS results in Austria would reveal cross-denominational differences between men and women, young and old, as well as urban and rural residents. When moderator Susanne Mauthner-Weber (“Kurier”) asked whether religion is a unifying or separating factor in society, Polak replied: “Both. Religions are inhomogeneous in themselves.”

Quo vadis, Österreich?

What is important to the Austrians in their lives? In what do they believe? How do they work, how do they shape their relationships, how do they relate to politics and society?

The Austrian team of EVS publishes a book analyzing such issues and the change over time in the Austrian society between 1990 and 2018. “Quo vadis, Österreich? Werwandel zwischen 1990 und 2018” is published by Czernin and expected for early 2019.
