World Values Survey – Indonesia

This research project seeks to understand Indonesians’ attitudes to social, cultural and political issues through the World Values Survey.

World Values Survey – Indonesia


Indonesia has emerged as the largest experiment in democratic governance in the Islamic world. How do contemporary Indonesians view democratic institutions, and alternatives to them? How do beliefs vary across this large and highly diverse polity? How engaged are Indonesians in civil society networks? Are they influenced by religious or other beliefs, or by historical traditions and trends? This project will collect critical cross-sectional and longitudinal information on Indonesians’ attitudes to social, cultural, and political issues, by implementing the World Values Survey (WVS).
