  • Abstract:

    Twenty-five years after the fall of the Iron Curtain, more than forty scholars from Central and Southeast Europe (CSE) came together at the University of Graz in Austria to take stock of the social changes that have been going on since 1989/90. The conference in 2014 was the starting point of this issue of the International Journal of Sociology, which covers a wide range of topics: patterns of social networks, social and institutional trust and political participation as well as wage dynamics of East–West commuters. This introduction outlines basic data and theories on the economic and democratic transition in CSE to serve as a frame for the articles presented in this issue. They are country case studies from Croatia, Hungary, and Slovenia and country-comparative studies dealing with East European-Austrian border regions. Altogether, the issue aims at raising international attention to new findings regarding social, structural, and sociocultural changes in the CSE countries.
