Course aim

The current crisis of the EU and the dynamics of shifting global powers brings the region of Central Europe into a new era of uncertainty. Different nation states and political elites play a balancing act between national solidarity and EU cooperation, neoliberal free market economy and state sanctions on trade and flows of capital. At the same time, these countries are trying to transform state and society relations.
