This interdisciplinary course examines the economic, political and socio-cultural challenges and dilemmas of post-communist transition in the countries of East Central and Eastern Europe. While the focus is on the examination and comparison of developments in East Central European, Baltic and Balkan states, the major development trends in the non-Baltic post-Soviet states will be considered as well. As an honours course, it strongly encourages individual student application of research through self-study methods and regular participation in seminar discussions.
