Crisis, Conflict and Security in Central and Eastern Europe

Series Editors:
Heidi Hein-Kircher, Herder-Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe, Marburg, Germany.
Liliya Berezhnaya, University of Münster, Germany; Central European University, Vienna, Austria; Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.

Security, crisis and conflicts play a crucial role in the international relations of Central and Eastern European states and in internal affairs, between national, ethnic and religious groups. Crises, conflicts, security issues and their perceptions are closely linked to state building, nationalism, the fall of Soviet hegemony, as well as multi-ethnicity and multi-culturality in Central and Eastern Europe.

The series discusses the emergence, fostering and sustainability of conflicts and crises, as well as the perception of security problems and the attempts to create security from various perspectives in modern times. The series includes volumes written by scholars of various disciplines, but with a focus on history. It aims to provide interpretations and historical dimensions relating to the current triggers of in-security and conflicts in Central and Eastern Europe. Doing so, the series provides an innovative insight into current and urgent research problems.
