Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 IAB)

Please join the Harriman Institute, the East Central European Center, the Blinken European Institute, the Balassi Institute, and the Hungarian Cultural Center for a conference that will discuss the causes and agents of both backwardness and catching up in East Central Europe, notably the Eastern member states of the European Union. Panels will address early 20th century questions of development, the period of state socialism, the role of ideologies and nationalism, as well as the key question of how to interpret the past quarter century of democratization and market economy.

This event is open to Columbia faculty and students.
