Aims and Scope

Transition Studies Research Network was founded in 2002 as CEEUN-Central Eastern European University Cooperation, with the aim to connect a group of experts and university faculty in a program of cooperation devoted to research programs and specialized international postgraduate and doctoral courses. The Network has grown fast and soon after the scientific “voice” was established with the Journal Transition Studies Review, published initially by the CEEUN, then by Egea - Bocconi University Press, and finally by Springer Wien-New York. At the beginning, JTSR was focusing on transition in Central and Southeast Europe, interpreting CEEUN purely as a European network.

Soon afterwards, the EU enlargement was achieved extending the aims and scope to differentiated forms of partnership with Russia, Ukraine, Caucasus, the Black Sea and Caspian Seas, Mediterranean regions and Near East. Today this approach has dramatically changed following a serious violation of the international laws and agreements by the Russian backed insurgency and later invasion of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine.

Today we are facing the most severe crisis of security and confidence between European Union countries and Russia since the Second World War and the reunification of Germany. The future is unpredictable and certainly nothing will return to be as before in the relations with Russia. CEEUN was launched in Vienna and its first meeting took place at the Institution that was founded by Friedrich August von Hayek and Ludwig von Mises, two great thinkers and economists: the Austrian Institute for Economic Research.
