Biographical Note:
Abby Innes joined the European Institute at the LSE in 1997 as Lecturer in the Political Sociology of East Central Europe. After graduating from the LSE in 1991 with a B.Sc. Econ. (Govt.), she worked as Assistant to the General Secretary of the Czechoslovak Federal Foreign Office, and in the Office of the Government as part of a PHARE research team. From 1992-1993 she worked in the European Industrial Development Programme at the PSI, London. An LSE Ph.D. (1994-7), she also attended MIT as a Visiting Scholar through 1996/7. She was a Jean Monnet Fellow at the EUI from 2001-2.

Her research and teaching is centred on the political economy of transition in Central Europe. Her current research investigates the persistent weakness of party political development in contemporary Central Europe and the continuing political economic pressures on democratisation.

Recent published work includes, 'Czechoslovakia: The Short Goodbye', (2001) Yale University Press, and (with Anna Grzymala-Busse) ‘Great Expectations: The EU and Domestic Political Competition in East Central Europe’, East European Politics and Societies, Volume 17, Issue 1, February 2003. pp.64-74.
