Central and Eastern European Forum of Young Legal, Political and Social Theorists

Welcome on the website of the Central and Eastern European Forum of Young Legal, Political and Social Theorists (CEE Forum). The CEE Forum is a platform for the exchange of experience and ideas as well as for the development of sustainable contacts and ties among young scholars sharing similar interests, thereby transcending traditional institutional and disciplinary boundaries alike. The work of the CEE Forum concentrates on three fields: the organization of Annual Conferences, the publication of a Yearbook with a selection of the best conference contributions, and the provision of this Website as a permanent platform for the exchange of information.

CEE-Forum Yearbook Vol. 7 published!

The seventh yearbook, containing selected contributions of the 2016 conference in Budapest, was recently published.

The volume focuses on understanding the constantly evolving process of democratization. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union democratic transitions took place all over this region and the new democracies had different shapes. All states, however, wished to become a western-type democracy. The authors evaluate the ongoing struggle in the region to understand and to make others understand the peculiarities of these seemingly western-type, but somewhat different democratic regimes.
