EVS2017: Results in spain

Valores en la era de la incertidumbre: individualismos y solidaridades

The Spanish EVS team published the book “Valores en la era de la incertidumbre: individualismos y solidaridades”, edited by María Silvestre Cabrera (former EVS National Program Director in Spain).

The book focuses on the EVS2017 results in Spain, whose fieldwork took place between late 2017 and early 2018. It consists of almost one hundred questions on the values of citizenship, values that are grouped into large thematic dimensions of analysis: family, work, friendships, leisure, politics, religion, personal satisfaction and quality of life, attitudes towards migratory movements, social capital, social solidarity, identities, etc.
This fifth wave shows us a Spanish society that was beginning to feel the relief of the hardships of the economic crisis, but that had very close to its memory. This has meant that uncertainty and precariousness persist but, at the same time, hand in hand with an individualism that is based on the defence of free choice, new forms of solidarity have emerged that recognise the vulnerable person as being close to them, in a recognisable situation of which they are not to blame, which provokes empathy and social recognition. Individualism persists, even in times of uncertainty, but it is not alien to social solidarity. But it also shows us a dual Spain, which shares in a very unanimous way certain fundamental principles, such as support for democracy or the legitimacy of the welfare state, but which, in others, reminds us that this country has been trying for centuries to string together diverse identities, dual ideologies and a social stratification that is not quite egalitarian.
