August 29, 2016

CENS is publishing the first round of papers in the "Frontiers of Democracy Working Papers" series as part of its "Frontiers of Democracy: Embedding Democratic Values in Moldova and Ukraine" project. The aim of this project is to facilitate embedding democratic values in the societal ethos in Moldova and Ukraine by providing a forum for discussion of the difficulties of such a complex process and by drawing on the transition experience of the Visegrad countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia).

The papers published in the series are prepared by authors from various backgrounds: scholars from academia, analysts from think tanks, practicioners from civil society organizations.

The first round of papers published now deals with the context of embedding democratic values in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as with political participation and socialization. They include the following:
