Stuck in Transition: Rebranding Post-socialism as the Global East?


As part of the "Aleksanteri Alumni Talks", IfL researcher Dr Nadir Kinossian will discuss on 13 April 2021 whether the "transition paradigm" is still an appropriate conceptualisation for understanding the changes in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.

In the "Aleksanteri Alumni Talks" series, former participants in the Aleksanteri Institute's Visiting Fellows Programme present their research on Central and Eastern Europe. The monthly talks are held on Zoom, and take place at 15:00 – 16:15 Helsinki time (UTC +2). The presentations are followed by comments given by Aleksanteri Institute’s researchers and scholars from among the Visiting Fellow alumni, and a Q & A session.
