This chapter offers a general assessment of the extent to which the foregoing chapters have helped achieve the objectives set out at the start of the book. The general conclusion is that while changing value orientations are certainly affecting the attitudes and priorities of governments, they are themselves being changed by the political environment to which they contribute. While the tasks of government are becoming more complex, there is no evidence to support the view that the countries of Western Europe are becoming less governable in consequence.

Keywords:   value orientations, Western Europe
