Eastern European Views on Democracy Two Decades after the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper will explore changing attitudes toward democracy in Eastern Europe, using data from two unique public opinion surveys: a 1991 survey by the Times Mirror Center (the forerunner of the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press) and a fall 2009 survey by the Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project. The paper will examine key measures of support for democracy in eight nations included in both surveys: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Russia, and Ukraine. In these surveys, all samples were nationally representative (with the exception that the 1991 survey in Russia excluded areas east of the Ural Mountains) and all interviews were conducted face-to-face.

The surveys included questions on views of the transition to multiparty democracy and free markets, support for democratic values and institutions, political efficacy, and inequality, as well as a number of other questions on values related to democracy.

The paper will explore trends on these questions over the two decade period and examine a number of questions relevant to the literatures on public opinion and democracy. First, what is the relationship between economic prosperity and support for democracy in Eastern Europe? Second, what is the relationship between views of free market capitalism and views about democracy? Third, what is the relationship between support for democracy and education, age, religiosity, and other demographic variables? And finally, what is the relationship between tolerance for ethnic and religious minorities and support for democracy?
