Disintegration of planned economy and shifts in international relations led to a regime change in Central Eastern Europe in 1989/1990, opening the road for the whole region to get free from Soviet rule, and start reintegrating into Western economic, political and security systems. The socio-economic transformation (transition in the parlance of development banks and academic literature) has produced so far a mixed record in most countries.

The course aims at analysing the particular Hungarian regime change and the transformation/transition process that has evolved since the country broke with the former political system in 1989/1990. In the early 1990s, Hungary was seen as a leading reformer and as such a natural candidate to join the European Union among the very first few. Accession eventually took place in 2004. At present, Hungary - already an EU member state - struggles with a certain 'adjustment fatigue'. We will look at key policy areas and analyse recent political and economic policy events.
