The course provides an introduction to an evolving discipline that studies external and internal determinants of  major economic policy reforms and institutional changes, and their related political problems.  Apart from the general difficulties of reform policies the course also analyzes in a comparative perspective the experiences of major reforms measures implemented in Central and Eastern Europe in transition.
