Rosyjska wizja Europy Środkowej: tradycje i dzisiejsza perspektywa
During the 1970-1980s in the framework of Soviet comparative studies in history the regional approach was formed with distinguishing of Central Europe, South-East Europe and Eastern Europe (all these regions were parts of the socialist space then). Such a traditional division dominates so far in the works of Russian scholars, who have normally rather negative attitude to the concept of East-Central Europe, i.e. the expanding of Central Europe at the expense of Eastern Europe. Discussions about European regions and correspondent terminology using geographical, historical, political and civilizational arguments, make it possible to overcome some radical treatments.
This volume intends to fill the gap in the range of publications about the post-transition social housing policy developments in Central and Eastern Europe by delivering critical evaluations about the past two decades of developments in selected countries’ social housing sectors, and showing what conditions have decisively impacted these processes.
Contributors depict the different paths the countries have taken by reviewing the policy changes, the conditions institutions work within, and the solutions that were selected to answer the housing needs of vulnerable households. They discuss whether the differences among the countries have emerged due to the time lag caused by belated reforms in selected countries, or whether any of the disparities can be attributed to differences inherited from Soviet times. Since some of the countries have recently become member states of the European Union, the volume also explores whether there were any convergence trends in the policy approaches to social housing that can be attributed to the general changes brought about by the EU accession.
