Sažetak

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.

    Socijalna kohezija i dobrobit u Europi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Posljednjih se godina uvriježilo mišljenje da socijalna kohezija, tj. socijalna struktura našeg društva, slabi. U ovom se izvješću provodi empirijska analiza osnovanosti takve zabrinutosti i razmatra se važnost socijalne kohezije za procjenu kvalitete života građana. Na temelju podataka iz posljednja tri kruga Europskog istraživanja o kvaliteti života (EQLS) Europske zaklade za poboljšanje životnih i radnih uvjeta provedena 2007., 2011. i 2016. u ovom se izvješću procjenjuje trenutačna razina socijalne kohezije u EU-u i njezin razvoj tijekom vremena. Izvješće je usmjereno na skupine koje su izložene riziku od niske socijalne kohezije i na socijalna obilježja koja pridonose stvaranju kohezije. Rezultati pokazuju da su se uz predvidljive pokretače socijalne kohezije, tj. blagostanje, uključiv i velikodušan sustav socijalne skrbi, visoku razinu obrazovanja i nisku stopu nezaposlenosti, digitalne vještine pokazale kao jedan od ključnih pokretača u stvaranju povezanijih društava, a time i sretnijih građana u EU-u.
