It has been argued that the economic collapse of the former Soviet Union and the transformation of political and economic systems in post-Soviet Belarus resulted in a decline in the material circumstances of households, in a reduction of social integration and social cohesion, and a decline in the ability of people to take control over their own lives (Muradyan, 2011; Abbott and Wallace, 2010). Furthermore, previous research has shown that labor management practices in Belarus are more negative for workers than those under the Soviet system (Danilovich and Croucher, 2011). Building upon these and other studies, this research uses descriptive attitudinal data from multiple waves of the World Values Survey to examine and explore the political and economic structural country contextual factors impacting the labor transformation in the country, with a focus on changing work attitudes and values in post-Soviet Belarus from 1990–2000.

Keywords: Belarus, Work Values and Attitudes, Labor Management, Country-contextual Factors, Economic and Social Transformations
