Dr. Inglehart's research focuses on cultural change and its consequences. Using World Values survey data from 78 countries, he has investigated linkages between the values and beliefs of mass publics and the presence or absence of democratic institutions. He studies how cultural transitions in industrial societies influence individual autonomy and self-expression, politics, motivation to work, sexual and religious norms, and other central society and political orientations.
