Evolutionary Modernization & Cultural Change with Ronald Inglehart

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

Ronald Inglehart winner with Harvard professor Pippa Norris of the 2011 Johan Skytte Prize, talks about the World Values Survey. Drawing on data from the six waves of the World Values survey (carried out in 1981, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005-2006 and 2011-2012) in almost 100 countries amd containing 90 % of the world’s population), the project reveals astonishingly strong linkages between the values and beliefs of mass publics and the presence or absence of democratic institutions, supporting the thesis that political culture plays a crucial role in the emergence and survival of democracy.


Cosponsored by the Center for Turkish Studies and the Mark O. Hatfield School of Government, Portland State University.

The event is free and open to the public but advanced registration is required.
