Abstract: The independence period of the Republic of Moldova conditioned important changes at the economic and political level. The deepest and most grievous changes, in terms of social cost, are those who have an impact on the social structure, the life conditions, the people's behaviour and mentality. Social change refers to the modifications in the basic structures of the society, so it produces a quality and quantity passing to one level to another level of the social system. In this paper we present the results of a survey on a national-level in Moldova. The research was focused on the recent trends in social stratification in this former soviet country. Another issue was the evaluation of the current socio-political situation and the people’s orientations (towards Europe or towards the Euroasian Union).
Keywords: social stratification; social class; social change; social-economic development; european integration; euroasiatic integration.
Cuvinte-cheie: stratificare socială; clasă socială; schimbare socială; dezvoltare socio-economică; integrare europeană; integrare euroasiatică.
