• Rise and decline of liberalism in Eastern Europe

Rise and decline of liberalism in Eastern Europe

Ferenc Laczó, PhD
assistant professor of history

What were the reasons behind the liberal turnaround of Eastern Europe in 1989? Why has liberal democracy proved so vulnerable and fragile in Poland or Hungary? Has their Post-Communist transition failed just after Western institutions declared it a success? What lessons can Europeans draw from the recent political changes in these countries?
