Sažetak

This report explores how Europeans perceive the quality of their societies, and of their public services. It looks at such aspects of society as trust in institutions and other people, perceived tensions between social groups, attitudes towards migrants and the effects of the economic crisis on social inclusion and social cohesion. It finds that satisfaction with the economic situation of one’s country, not being in employment and overall life satisfaction appear to boost satisfaction with public services; hardship appears to reduce it. In societal terms, trust in institutions decreased visibly from 2007 to 2011. Trust in people however changed less than trust in institutions and is more similar across the EU. A positive relationship exists between trust in institutions and satisfaction with the economic situation of one’s own country; a negative relationship between trust in institutions and inequality. And tensions were perceived to be highest between different racial and ethnic groups and between rich and poor. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Kvaliteta života u Europi – Kvaliteta socijalnih i javnih usluga

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ovo izvješće koristi zaključke trećeg Europskog istraživanja o kvaliteti života da istraži do koje su mjere Europljani zadovoljni s različitim aspektima društva – glede javnih usluga i društvenih odnosa – te kako oni utječu na njihovu dobrobit. Također uspoređuje zaključke s onima iz 2007. kako bi ocijenilo kako je gospodarska kriza utjecala na kvalitetu društva. Kvaliteta života dijelom ovisi o dostupnosti javnih usluga dobre kvalitete kao što su zdravstvo, obrazovanje te socijalna skrb. A kvaliteta života i društva također se oblikuje socijalnim odnosima: odsutnošću tenzija, jednakošću među socijalnim skupinama te osjećajima povjerenja među ljudima.
