With the economic collapse of the former Soviet Union, Belarus was faced with new political and economic realities. In the two decades since, these new realities have also impacted other aspects on Belarusian’s day-to-day lives, including their societal values and attitudes. This research uses descriptive attitudinal data from multiple waves of the World Values Survey to examine and explore the political and economic transformations in post-Soviet Belarus from 1990–2000 and there impacts on societal values and attitudes.

Keywords: Belarus, Country-Contextual Factors, Societal Values and Attitudes, Political Transformation, Economic and Social Transformation
