Taking Stock of Shock

Buchvorstellung und Gespräch mit Kristen Ghodsee (Philadelphia/USA) und Mitchell A. Orenstein (Philadelphia/USA)

Online-Veranstaltung

Book Presentation and Conversation with Kristen GHODSEE (Philadelphia/USA) and Mitchell A. ORENSTEIN (Philadelphia/USA).

In their recent book "Taking Stock of Shock" Kristen Ghodsee and Mitchell A. Orenstein look at the social consequences of the 1989 revolutions. Drawing from political science and ethnography, they examine 27 countries over the 30 years of transition in the post-socialist world and analyze the competing narratives about that transition. Their interdisciplinary approach enables them to closely investigate who won and who lost in it and to ultimately develop a new narrative about transition from an inequalities perspective.

The presentation of the book will be followed by a discussion with questions from the audience.

Hosted by:

Angelika NUßBERGER, Professor at the Faculty of Law at the University of Cologne and Director of the Institute of Eastern European Law and Comparative Law within the Academy for European Human Rights Protection, Head of the Cologne Branch of the DGO
