Povzetek

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.

    Kakovost življenja v Evropi – Kakovost družbenih in javnih storitev

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    V tem poročilu so ugotovitve tretje Evropske raziskave o kakovosti življenja uporabljene za preučitev, kako zadovoljni so Evropejci z različnimi vidiki družbe v smislu javnih storitev in družbenih odnosov ter kako to vpliva na njihovo blaginjo. Navedena je tudi primerjava z ugotovitvami iz leta 2007, ki prikazuje, kako je gospodarska kriza vplivala na kakovost družbe. Kakovost življenja je deloma odvisna od razpoložljivosti kakovostnih javnih storitev, kot so zdravstvo, izobraževanje in socialno varstvo. Kakovost življenja in družbe pa oblikujejo tudi družbeni odnosi , in sicer neobstoj napetosti ), enakost družbenih skupin in občutek zaupanja med ljudmi.
