Abstract: Values in Malta, just as in other Western European societies, are shifting towards greater individualisation. Such a process refers to the growing autonomy of individuals in developing their own values and norms, increasingly turning away from traditional and institutionalised value systems. Individualisation and its concomitant secularisation is believed to be an ongoing and irreversible social process. What follows is an abridged comparative report based on results from the third wave of the Values Survey undertaken for the Maltese Government by Misco International (1995) in comparison to similar surveys held in ten western European countries and in Malta by Gallup in 1984 and 1991.
