Several members of the European Values Study participated in the 10°Conference of the European Survey Research Association, held in Milan from 17 to 21 of July, 2023. More than 900 scholars attended the biennal event.

Panel discussion “Survey research post-pandemic: What is it becoming?”
Ruud Luijkx, Chair of the Executive Committee of EVS participated in the panel discussion “Survey research post-pandemic: What is it becoming?”, chaired by Gerry Nicolaas (National Centre for Social Research).

The panel discussion will bring together experts in the field to share insights about the changing survey landscape and the impact that this is having on survey practice. The panel will explore how advances in technology and changes in societal norms are changing the way surveys are designed and implemented. Even before the pandemic, we were already witnessing a shift from traditional interviewer-administered surveys to online surveys, either as a stand-alone mode or embedded within a mixed mode system including face-to-face, telephone and paper. The panel will reflect on the impact of Covid-19 on these advances and changes. This includes discussing the challenges and opportunities that have arisen from conducting surveys during a pandemic, and to what extent these will continue to shape the future of survey research. The panel will discuss how survey practitioners and researchers can navigate current challenges and opportunities to ensure that their surveys remain robust, efficient, and effective in providing high-quality data and insights that can inform decision-making processes.

Panel Participants:

  • Brad Edwards, Vice President, Westat, Large Surveys Practice
  • Rory Fitzgerald, Professor of Practice in Survey Research, City, University of London
  • Ruud Luijkx, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, Tilburg University
  • Caroline Roberts, Assistant Professor in Survey Methodology, University of Lausanne
  • Christof Wolf, President, GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences

Values Surveys Sessions

The European Values Study and the World Values Survey continue their cooperation also in dissemination activities. The two research group proposed the session “European Values Study and World Values Survey: Exploring New Survey Findings and Addressing Methodological Challenges”.

The session, organized by Vera Lomazzi, Kseniya Kizilova, and Ruud Luijkx, welcomed proposals addressing substantive and/or methodological aspects of value research making use of the EVS/WVS data -solely or in combination with other types of data- to address a broad scope of issues, including political culture and political attitudes, support for democracy and political participation, perceptions of gender equality and moral values, identity and trust, civil society, corruption, solidarity, and migration among the others.
