Cosmopolitan Communications: Cultural Diversity in a Globalized World

Author(s): Ronald Inglehart, Pippa Norris

Cosmopolitan Communications


Cosmopolitan Communications develops a new theoretical framework for understanding cosmopolitan communications and uses it to identify the conditions under which global communications are most likely to endanger cultural diversity. The authors analyze empirical evidence from both the societal level and the individual level, examining the outlook and beliefs of people in a wide range of societies. The study draws on evidence from the World Values Survey, covering 90 societies in all major regions worldwide from 1981 to 2007. The conclusion considers the implications of their findings for cultural policies (Cambridge University Press).
