CENS is publishing the second 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).
