The Future of Revolutions in Central and Eastern Europe


The Future of Revolutions in Central and Eastern Europe

In 2017, we will remember the 100th anniversary of Russian revolutions, that influenced not only the political, economical and societal processes in former Russian Empire, but also countries that were known 30 years from after this revolution as the Soviet block countries. In the previous year, there was visible lots of calls for the fighting for democracy in former post-communistic countries. Some analysts and journalists raise a questions about new wave of illiberalism in Central and Eastern Europe. Nevertheless, in last decades there were some crucial findings, that also confirmed these opinions. However, these opinions should not be generalized only in the region of Central and Eastern Europe, because of the changes we are able to observe all over the world.
