Societies in Eastern Europe
Prof. Dr. Alexander Libman

moscow_website50Welcome to the Chair of Societies in Eastern Europe!

Our portfolio of research and teaching covers the political and societal changes in the countries of the post-Soviet Eurasia and other post-Communist states.

Our focus is, amongst other things, on the specifics of the post-Soviet autocracies, the role of bureaucracy, subnational policies, international cooperation of authoritarian regimes and the influence of historical legacies on the current societal development.

In terms of methods, we use large-N quantitative methodology (above all the analysis of regional and micro data sets and experiments). However, our research also covers the analysis of case studies and mixed methods research.
