CENS's new book titled "Frontiers of Democracy: Embedding Democratice Values in Central and Eastern Europe. Good practices and limits of transferability", edited by Bogdan Mihai Radu and Zsuzsanna Végh is now released and is available through our website.

Focusing on democratic values and transition in the four Visegrad countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) and in Ukraine and Moldova, this book is the outcome of the project titled “Frontiers of Democracy: Embedding Democratic Values in Moldova and Ukraine” led by the Center for European Neighborhood Studies of the Central European University, and implemented in cooperation with the EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy, the Foreign Policy Association of Moldova, the Institute of Euro-Atlantic Cooperation, the Research Center of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association and the Kosciuszko Institute.

Beyond a general overview about how democratic values become rooted in societies during transition and specifically during transition in Central and Eastern Europe, the chapters of this volume discuss youth political participation and socialization, civic education, the role of media in democratization and the development of values such as tolerance and diversity, or transparency and accountability.

The book was published in 2017 by the Center for European Neighborhood Studies with the kind support of the International Visegrad Fund.
