A Sino-Brazilian Study on Values and visions: family, friendship and media

Thomas Patrick Dwyer

Abstract


University systems of Brazil and China undergone relatively similar expansion processes since the 1990s, both characterized by a significant role played by the central State, and which affected youth lifestyles, values and horizons in both countries. This article describes a comparative survey research on the values and orientations of tertiary students in China and Brazil, conducted in collaboration between the Brazilian Sociological Society (SBS) and the China Youth and Children Research Centre (CYCRC), with contributions of two further institutions - the China Youth and Research Association (CYCRA) and IPEA (the Brazilian Institute for Applied Economic Research). Findings suggest many similarities between Brazilian and Chinese tertiary students, regarding both to their view of institutions, their future expectations and challenges to fulfil these.
