Transformation in Central and Eastern Europe has been characterised by historically shaped crises and conflicts on all levels of political, economic and societal life. Political transformation has partly resulted in hybrid political systems which are incapable of integrating broad layers of their populations. Economic crises and uneven (re)distribution of property has marginalised (most often the same) large groups of the respective societies. Minority and ethno-political conflicts, many of them at a stalemate, have severely hampered state building as well as the consolidation of societal stability ¬Ė and continue to do so. Contradicting interpretations of history prevent societies from developing a common identity and thus aggravate nation building processes. At the same time, political crises and societal upheaval, as witnessed for example in Georgia and Ukraine, have pushed forward the transformation of political systems. The Summer School 2007 will focus on the problems and the potential for (democratic) consolidation in Eastern Europe. We are requesting applications from historians, political scientists, sociologists, lawyers, geographers and economists who treat related topics in their scientific work.
