Understanding European values through data visualisation
On Europe Day (9 May 2022), the first copy of the third edition of the Atlas of European Values, titled ‘The Atlas of European Values: Change and Continuity in Turbulent Times’, was presented in the House of the Dutch Provinces in Brussels, Belgium. This publication was presented by the report’s authors and Tilburg University’s rector magnificus Wim van de Donk to Robert de Groot, the representatives of the Netherlands to the European Union.
A key feature of the European Value Atlas is the interactive map, charts and graphs. These visuals use data to illustrate topics such as migration, democracy, sustainability, welfare, identity and solidarity in an attractive way. This includes tracking different perspectives and values of EU citizens across the Member States, and how these views and standards have shifted over time. Moreover, in the interactive map, citizens’ values can be filtered e.g. through variables such as gender, education, age, or income (see below).
