Since the early 1990s Southeast European Studies have
undergone profound changes being shaped by the wars of
Yugoslav succession and the ramifications of post-socialism,
coupled with democratic deficiencies, which characterize
most of Southeast Europe. The countries which it encompasses
rest uneasily on the periphery of the developed variant of
Western capitalism, but they have nonetheless to contend
with the challenges of adjusting to a market economy. The
imprint of these contexts on academic research has led to a
discussion of the role of Southeast European Studies. It is
the task of this volume to summarize and raise awareness of
this discussion.

Christian Promitzer, Siegfried Gruber and
Harald Heppner work at the Research Area Southeast European
History and Anthropology which is part of the Institute of
History at the University of Graz.
