Core Conference 2019:

In the 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain, the former planned economies in East Germany and Eastern Europe have undergone fundamental processes of change. In the new federal states, the economic structure has undergone fundamental changes, but convergence with the old federal states is not complete. The economic catching-up process of the transition countries of Eastern Europe, some of which are now members of the European Union, is continuing. Where are East Germany and the transition countries today? How have democratic institutions and market-economy structures developed in the transition countries?
