Balabanis, George, Mueller, Rene and Melewar, T. C. (2002) The relationship between consumer ethnocentrism and human values. Journal of Global Marketing, 15 (3-4) . pp. 7-37. ISSN 0891-1762 [Article] (doi:10.1300/J042v15n03_02)


The study explores the relationship between human values and consumer ethnocentrism. Schwartz's (1992) framework of human values is used as the basis of the study. Hypotheses linking values and consumer ethnocentrism are developed and tested in samples of consumers drawn from Turkey and the Czech Republic respectively. Findings indicated that the values relationship to consumer ethno-centrism varies across the two countries surveyed. The study also confirmed that “conservation” types of values are positively related to consumer ethnocentrism. However, some of the hypotheses put forward are not empirically supported but they provide new avenues for future re-search.
