Project Description

The book publication “Reclaiming Democracy: Civil Society and Electoral Change in Central and Eastern Europe” was a joint project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and ERSTE Foundation.
The book is dedicated to the role of civil society in asserting democracy in post communist societies such as Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, Georgia and Ukraine described by key activists wich have been at the forefront of these changes.

The project which is supported by the ERSTE Foundation and implemented by WUS Austria is organising a series of book presentations with panel discussion and aims at connecting the universities as independent centres of free enquiry and critical thinking with authors of the book „Reclaiming Democracy: Civil Society and Electoral Change in Central and Eastern Europe“.

In addition to offering this event at participating universities, ERSTE Foundation together with GMF is providing free copies of this important publication on civil society movements in the region for all students attending the panel discussions.
