This chapter is based on the analysis of surveys conducted within the framework of Tuning project, a global initiative, which has been running worldwide for the last 18 years. The aim is to explore what the Tuning quantitative data can reveal about what different stakeholders in different regions think about the Ethical Commitment competence. Due to the same format of consultations in most of the Tuning projects, Tuning can be seen as a goldmine-producing comparable data from more than 118 countries in different continents, across a variety of disciplines and target groups.
