About the project
The research project seeks to expand scientific knowledge about the outlook and values of young adults today.
The project is motivated by the fact that this is the first generation that grew up in a world saturated with new media; in the world of consumer culture and social movements. Also, a large amount of research shows that currently in various modern societies there are significant changes in beliefs, attitudes, values and religious beliefs.
The purpose of this study is to assess the nature of the changes – values and worldview – in connection with the alleged transformation of religion (religious feelings and practices, institutions, religious socialization, and so on.) under the influence of numerous factors in the age of late modernity. The object of the research is university students. The subject of research are worldviews and values of today’s young adults who are currently studying at universities.
The empirical object of study in all participating countries are university students (bachelors and masters).
During 2016 two stages of data collection are being implemented:
- Quantitative survey among students (both live and online)
- Personal interviews with respondents who volunteered.
In Russia the emperical part was conducted at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow with the official permission and the assistance of the Center for Institutional Research.
