Summer Seminar on Central and Eastern Europe twenty years after

Vama Veche, Romania
20 – 25 July 2009

INTRODUCTION

The Luxembourg Institute for European and International Studies
(LIEIS) is a forum of academic and intellectual discussions and
research, as well as a platform of training and upgrading for
undergraduates and young professionals from both western and eastern
countries. One of LIEIS’ constant themes of research and debate has
been the European integration process as well as developments in the
wider Europe. The topic has been explored for the last 15 years under
the form of summer schools organized by the Institute in cooperation
with the Black Sea University Foundation, and, later on, with the
European Cultural Centre in Romania.

MAIN TOPICS

A sobering balance sheet

Eastern Europe in 1989 and in 2009: the empirical evidence: tangible
(economic, technological) and intangible factors (political, societal,
mental, cultural)

Expectations, wishes and dreams

The euphoric phase: 1989 – 199…

The promises. The frustrations. The disenchantement.

Achievements: political, economic, social

Failures: why did so much go so wrong ?

The unfinished agenda

The EU as a rescuer. The EU as a spoiler

Comparing developments in Eastern and Western Europe

The evolution of Eastern Europe in a global perspective

The next twenty years: stuttering ahead or taking off at last ?
