Discussion Series

The Civic Education Project announces the launching of the Discussion Series, which will publish papers by academics from Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The papers are intended to give circulation to social science research taking place in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, as well as to create a forum for discussion on pertinent issues in this region.

CEP hopes that this publication will provide the opportunity for much-needed exchange of information and views on issues that are arising out of the transitions to democratic societies and free market economies taking place in the countries of this region. We believe it is particularly important for scholars from this region to have a voice in the international arena.

The Discussion Series will be published in Budapest and widely distributed to individuals and organizations with an interest in the post-communist transition in Europe and Eurasia. Selected papers will be translated into Russian and other international languages.

Call for Papers

Scholars from the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are invited to submit academic work (approximately 5000 words in length) for consideration for the series. Contributors should have received a postgraduate degree in the past ten years or be enrolled in a doctorate program, and preferably should be pursuing an academic career in the region. Please consult further instructions for submissions.

A Guide for Submissions

Call for Commentary

Additionally, the Discussion Series will publish selected comments in future issues. Submissions should not exceed 1000 words and should be forwarded to CEP’s European Office. Email: cep@cepnet.hu.
