Globalization and fragmentation, weakly controlled flows of
information and knowledge, increasing cleavages in societies
undergoing rapid change, flows of migrants, services and
capital, bypassing the control of national governments, life
styles and consumption patterns produced by electronic media
and advertising – all these developments already have a
significant impact on post-Soviet regions. And all kind
of actors – decision makers, journalists, experts,
students – perceive the environment beyond their respective
national borders increasingly as the „playground“ they
have to take into account, and as a framework for action.

The chapters in this volume are produced by experts in the
so called transformation countries in Eastern Europe. They
address various questions on inter- and transnational
relations, thereby offering a framework for reflection and
for analysis of macro-trends around policy fields
relevant for the countries in Central and Eastern Europe.
The product certainly
mirrows the specific environment of researchers, teachers
and students in these countries. At the same time, it
reflects a process of intensive discussion on the state of
IR literature worldwide. Furthermore, this book demonstrates
how useful teaching tools for universities and institutes
not only in Eastern and Central Europe can be produced.
