Final report: Varieties of Capitalism and Economic Governance in Central Europe  
Project 20: STACEE

This report, written by Robert Hancké and Lucia Kurekova, analyses the massive political-economic transition in Central Europe since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. In many ways, the period of the mid-2000s when this project was conducted, was a good time to assess the establishment of democratic capitalism in the region. In May 2004, most of the Central European states had introduced democratic political systems and become functioning market economies, and many of them joined the EU as full members. Thus, in formal terms, the first (and often formative) stages of the transition were over, and this report analyses the effects of those first stages on the subsequent political-economic development in the region.
