Values and Identities – a policymaker’s guide
The Joint Research Center (JRC) published in November 2021 the report “Values and Identities – a policymaker’s guide“.
This report presents the state-of-the-art scientific knowledge on Values and Identities from an interdisciplinary perspective. Values are said to be the dominating forces in life and Identities represent who we are and to whom we belong. Both shape the political landscape in democracies and have gained in importance in recent decades. The report contains important insights for policymakers to adapt their work to the challenges of our time, including a dedicated toolbox section. The scientific review and toolbox are complemented by findings from a dedicated Eurobarometer on Values and Identities commissioned for this purpose.
To develop the report, the JRC involved several scholars from different disciplines, including values scholars from the EVS: Loek Halman and Frederic Gonthier, who contributed to the panel of academics.
The JRC’s report is available here.
