The social development of human values in childhood and early adolescence

The social development of human values in childhood and early adolescence

The European population faces multiple challenges when integrating social and cultural diversity with cross-generational impact; that is why mapping the prevalence and expression of basic human values in societies becomes a pressing issue. However, scientific studies have focused exclusively on adolescents, neglecting the perspective of the younger generations. Given that the formation and development of basic human values, representations of justice and social attitudes begin in childhood and are culturally informed, it is vital to carry out transnational research with this area of the population. The project seeks to respond to this need by proposing to map the basic human values of children and early adolescents (6-14 years), and their association with
other central factors, for a better understanding of the current and future dynamics of inclusion and exclusion in the European area. The project will also allow to analise the role of socialization in the developement of human values.
