Course Content

This course analyses the fundamental economic and social changes in Eurasia in recent decades. It focuses on the establishment and functioning of the socialist system and its later dismantling in favor of a market economy. Both of these transformation processes included not only the change of economic patterns and property rights but also affected social relations, values and ideologies. The course discusses general issues and theories of transformations as well as comparing selected case studies. Particular attention will be given to the impacts of political and macro-economic changes on local communities.
