October 2007 issue of the Journal of Democracy devotes a special coverage to the recent developments in Central Eastern Europe. Martin Bútora authored one of the articles, Nightmares From the Past, Dreams of the Future.
Journal of Democracy, published by The Johns Hopkins University Press, asked seven experts to contribute short essays evaluating the situation of democracy in the region: Martin Bútora, Béla Greskovits, Krzysztof Jasiewicz, Ivan Krastev, Alina Mungiu-Pippidi, Jacques Rupnik, and Vladimir Tismaneanu. Under the title „Is East-Central Europe Backsliding?” the authors reflect the health of democracy in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia.
We at the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) focus on topics discussed in the Journal of Democracy in our project Populism and Liberal Democracy in Central and Eastern Europe.
