Kokkuvõte

This report provides an analysis of European societies in terms of social cohesion – in particular, social tensions, perceived social exclusion and community engagement are explored as key dimensions. It analyses the links between societal characteristics (quality of society) and well-being of different social groups. The analysis looks at how perceived levels of societal tensions have changed in European societies over time (2003–2016). It also examines which dimensions of social cohesion are most important for individual well-being. The report is based on data from Eurofound’s European Quality of Life Survey 2016, the fourth survey since 2003.

    Sotsiaalne sidusus ja heaolu Euroopas

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Viimastel aastatel on sageli väidetud, et sotsiaalne sidusus, meie ühiskondade sotsiaalne struktuur, on lagunemas. Aruandes analüüsitakse selle ehmatava väite empiirilist paikapidavust ning uuritakse, kui oluliselt mõjutab sotsiaalne sidusus inimeste elukvaliteedi hinnanguid. Tuginedes Eurofoundi kolme viimase Euroopa elukvaliteedi uuringu (EQLS) andmetele aastatest 2007, 2011 ja 2016, hinnatakse aruandes ELi praegust sotsiaalse sidususe taset ja selle muutumist ajas. Keskendutakse rühmadele, keda vähene sotsiaalne sidusus võib ohustada, ning sidusust tekitavatele ühiskondlikele teguritele. Kokkuvõttes ilmneb tulemustest, et lisaks ootuspärastele sotsiaalset sidusust edendavatele teguritele – majanduslik heaolu, helde ja kaasav hoolekandesüsteem, kõrge haridustase ja väike töötuse määr – kerkivad otsustavalt esile digioskused, mis aitavad muuta ELi ühiskondi sidusamaks ja inimesi seeläbi õnnelikumaks.
