(Announcement) Two decades and over five hundred scholarly issues later, Demokratizatsiya: The Journal of Post-Soviet Demokratization, is enjoying a new beginning at the Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (IERES) at the George Washington University.
The first issue, "Twenty Years Since the Collapse of the USSR: What Have We Learned?", draws (primarily) from presentations by members of the Program on New Approaches to Research and Security in Eurasia (PONARS Eurasia) that were given at a major policy conference in Washington, DC, in late 2011. This issue focuses on political economy, state-society relations, ethnic politics, and more, while the next issue will contain the second set of conference papers covering culture, history, and foreign policy."
"Demokratizatsiya is the indispensable international journal on post-Soviet democratization. It focuses on the end of the Soviet Union and the contemporary transformation of its successor states. From dissidents to presidents, readers recognize Demokratizatsiya as a tool for building institutions from the ashes of the USSR and communism. In each quarterly issue, distinguished scholars from around the world address politics, economics, social issues, legal systems, nationalities, international relations, and human rights."
Demokratizatsiya welcomes submissions by recognized and emerging academics, journalists, practitioners, and other specialists.
