This MA course, open also to Ph.D students, addresses core questions of economic success against the rather dismal performance of postcommunist economies, exacerbated by the impacts of the global financial crisis of 2007-2009. The course embeds eastern European experience over the past two decades in global comparative economic development. Providing a short historical background is followed by analysis of the components of change, including privatization and financial sector reform, as well as corporate governance. Country studies and a feedback to broader theories of institutional change round up the course. The main aim of the course is to provide a broad understanding of ups and downs in systemic change. The angle of analysis is to search how economic success could be attined, now and in the future, in the process of Europeanization. Background in economics is though an advantage, however it is not a prerequisite to taking this course.
