RESOCEA: Regime and Society in Eastern Europe (1956 – 1989): From Extended Reproduction to Social and Political

June, 2012 to May, 2015
EU FP7 - ERC Advanced Grant

The ambition of this project rests on the long-established tradition of the comparative politico-historical and interdisciplinary studies of the totalitarian regimes and on the theoretical efforts to elucidate the social dynamics and social change in Eastern Europe during the so called "real socialism". It will deal with the relations between regime and society in an attempt to highlight the growing tensions between them.
