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 reform experiences of  Central and Eastern Europe countries from  post-communist transformation until now. Students will acquire the necessary analytical apparatus to investigate concrete reform episodes in a comparative perspective.
