PERG congratulates Lucia and wishes her further energy for fruitful research!
The fall of Soviet Union over 20 years ago ushered in new political and economic ideologies and institutions to its former states, places where “many scholars doubted that the seeds of capitalist democracy would ever take root,” said CEU Professor of International Relations and European Studies Bela Greskovits.
After Lucia, Magda and Zdenek, PERG congratulates another member who successfully defended his PhD - Tibor Meszman, whose thesis was entitled "Strategic Choices during System Change: Peak Level Unions and Their Struggles for Political Relevance In Post-Socialist Slovenia, Serbia and Poland". Congratulations, Tibor!
