Aprės d’adhésion, le deluge: Democratic Governance
in Post-Accession Eastern Europe
In the last decade various East European democracies were afflicted by symptoms of democratic deterioration. The main objective of my project will be to provide an analytical interpretation of this backsliding: its timing, the reframing of the parameters of democratic governance that made it possible, and the forms of hybridity—the mixing of democratic and illiberal practices—to which it gives rise.
