Further details

I have been editor of the Journal of Contemporary Central and Eastern Europe (formerly titled Debatte) since 2007. I am currently handing over responsibility for editing this journal to my successor but will remain on the editorial board. It is an interdisciplinary journal published by Taylor and Francis which appears three times a year. The journal also organises regular conferences; the last one was entitled `Crisis and Resistance in Central and Eastern Europe' and was held at Warsaw University in November 2014 with a follow-up workshop reviewing the five years of developments in the region subsequently taking place in November 2019 in Warsaw. Both of these conferences were organised jointly with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in Warsaw.
