Hopebarometer 2018

In January 2018, the Hopebarometer was conducted to test how hopeful Dutch citizens feel. Soon, we will be presenting the full report, but for now, we give a small sneak-preview.

Firstly, the results show that people score higher on the first three more individual aspects of hope, and lower on the three more social aspects of hope. On the general ‘hope-index’, Dutch citizens scored a 6,34 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Trust in the future

The Hopebarometer 2018 had a special focus on the ‘trust in the future of the Netherlands’. When asked about their trust in different actors in society, people seem to be most positive about their friends and family, and neighbors. Generally, there seems to be less trust in strangers and societal institutes such as the national government, politicians and financial institutes.

When asked about their expectations, people seem to be optimistic about their own life, finances and about the economy as a whole, but a bit more skeptical about the future of society as a whole, the health care system, education and national safety. About the future of our climate, people are particularly pessimistic; on average, people scored a 4,53.

De hoopbarometer zegt: ‘Nederlanders zijn niet hoopvol over de toekomst’. En de grootste conclusie was: ‘er is angst voor de toekomst’. Het risico op apathie en cynisme is groot.ydgik5t2

Vele soorten van hoop

Het gebrek aan HOOP is misschien niet verrassend maar wel jammer. Maar je zou ook kunnen zeggen, HOOP gaat nooit weg. Want ga maar na, HOOP is overal en van altijd.

Maar er is zoveel HOOP, in zoveel verschillende gedaantes, dat we een mooie verzameling hebben gemaakt. Ik hoop dat je er iets aan hebt: luister mee…

Publication of book ‘Driven by Hope’

Published Academic Book – January 2018

Driven by Hope focuses on the central human experience of hope. In particular, it seeks to further a dialogue on this theme between theology and economics – but it also contains input from philosophy and psychology. The volume is the result of an international conference on the theme. The first chapter describes hope as a phenomenon with seven dimensions – it also introduces the Hopebarometer 1.0, a psychometric instrument to measure these dimensions. The other thirteen chapters of the book are grouped in three parts. The first part, ‘Economic Perspectives’, focuses on the question how the study of hope can be appropriated more fully in the discipline of economics. The second part, ‘Theological Perspectives’, investigates hope from a theological point of view, and seeks to integrate this with an economic understanding of hope. The third and last part, ‘Case Studies’, focuses on the role of hope in specific practices.
