New Analysis – Central Europe on the Road to Illiberalism

január 19, 2017  

Centre for European and North Atlantic Affairs (CENAA) gladly presents the latest issue of the CENAA Analysis “Central Europe on the Road to Illiberalism” written by Viera Žúborová from University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Trnava .

It has now been 20 years since Fareed Zakaria wrote his famous article on the state of democracy in the modern world. A remarkable new energy for this concept has risen from the region of Central Europe and directly impacts the traditional view on the concepts of democratization, consolidation and country transition. Some scholars believe that we are witnesses of a new backwards wave of democratization. Of whom some have also criticised the dynamic decay of the post-communist transition to democracy which was faced with potent and widespread expectations within the democracy without any “delay”.
