Povzetek

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.

    Socialna kohezija in blaginja v Evropi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    V zadnjih letih se je veliko govorilo o tem, da socialna kohezija, družbena nit naše družbe, razpada. To poročilo predstavlja empirično raziskavo utemeljenosti tega skrb vzbujajočega stališča in prikazuje pomembnost socialne kohezije pri vrednotenju kakovosti življenja državljanov. Opira se na podatke treh najnovejših evropskih raziskav o kakovosti življenja (EQLS), ki jih je v letih 2007, 2011 in 2016 izvedel Eurofound, in podaja oceno trenutne ravni socialne kohezije v EU in njen razvoj skozi čas. Osredotoča se na skupine, ki jim grozi nizka socialna kohezija, in na družbene značilnosti, ki prispevajo k ustvarjanju kohezije. Ugotovitve na splošno kažejo, da so se poleg predvidljivih dejavnikov socialne kohezije (blaginje, velikodušnega in vključujočega sistema socialnega varstva, visoke stopnje izobraženosti in nizke stopnje brezposelnosti) pojavile digitalne spretnosti kot kritičen dejavnik, ki pripomore k temu, da je družba bolj povezana, državljani EU pa so zato srečnejši.
