  • Description: The paper analyses the dynamic of change in attitudes and values in Croatia during the 1985 to 2010 period with special concentration on fractures following the dissolution of the socialist regime and constitution of the new capitalist and democratic regime. There are two main findings. With the disintegration of socialism, the combination of re-traditionalization and modernization emerges. Those value dimensions directly connected with identity dimensions are re-traditionalizing, and those further away from the identity core are modernizing. On the other hand, the initially high support for liberal principles, the market and democracy, after the experience with their application under the Croatian circumstances, is declining. In the second part of the paper the structure of the value system is analyzed. The opposition between traditionalism and modernism is diagnosed as dominant. In the period of the highest support for liberal values, liberalism emerges as a separate dimension; however, with the decline of support it is re-merging with traditionalism. The key unexpected finding is that liberalism is closer to traditionalism than to modernism.
