Inequalities During and After Transition in Central and Eastern Europe free pdf The aim of the book is to investigate, theoretically and empirically, key aspects of social and economic inequalities that developed during the transition of the formerly planned European economies. Although the focus is mainly on new EU member states, coverage of the analysis is extended to countries of the former Soviet Union and former Yugoslavia wherever possible. The empirical analyses generally consider the two decades after the start of transition- however, particular emphasis is given to more recent years in order to consider the effects of the global crisis that began in 2008-2009. All analyses are carried out adopting a comparative perspective and, whenever possible, Western EU members are used as benchmarks. This collection of contributions brings together the latest research on inequality and transition economies.
