Abstract [en]

Russia's full-scale invasion and war of aggression against Ukraine has, in addition to all the destruction, grief and terror for the people concerned, unravelled the profound instability in what has conventionally been understood as the world order.

The annual publication CBEES State of the Region report focuses on Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Balkans, and the Baltic Sea region, where we find countries that are closest to the war. This year, we have engaged over 30 scholars to analyze how the countries in this region have been affected by the war to form a tentative understanding of the unfolding consequences of the war for the region. Understandably, the consequences of the war tie into historical and contemporary conditions that also preceded the war.

The report presents a contemporary overview of the diversity of challenges the region and its countries face today, both on a macro level and on a grassroots level and gives a preliminary analysis of the implications for the region's future.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the CBEES State of the Region Report 2022/23 is to present an insight to the diferent environmental challenges facing the region due to the legacy of communist modernity, the breakdown of communism and the transition period, aswell as the ongoing war. It also sheds light on how political and economical concerns shape the approach to the environment and maps contemporary awareness and responses, forms of resistance and engagements with these issues in the region. The report gathers in-depth analyses of environmental concerns intransition in the region with particular focus on destruction and waste. It draws out common features, but also highlights local and cultural diversity in the region when it comes to waste, nature and activism.

The report consists of essays dealing with overall themes and 15 country reports. Together the individual contributions givea nuanced picture of the environmental threats in the region, the complexity linked to ideas of modernity and political and economic decision-making as well as values and rights claimedby Indigenous people and even nature itself. The current war in Ukraine adds another dimension to ecological concerns and bring new levels of destruction to the region.

The report is the third in a series of annual reports from CBEES (Centre for Baltic and East European Studies), reporting and refecting on the social and political developmentsin the Baltic Sea Region and Central and Eastern Europe, each year from a new and topical perspective. The overall purpose with this initiative is to offer a publication that will be of great interest to fellow researchers, policy makers, stakeholders, and the general public.

Abstract [sv]

Graffitikonstnärer har protesterat mot Rysslands invasion av Ukraina. På en vägg till det som en gång var en förskola har Banksy exempelvis sprayat bilden av ett barn som i en judokamp med en till synes övermäktig motståndare. Lyssna till ett samtal om några av dessa verk och konstens roll som protest och återerövrande av staden som rum.

Abstract [en]

Civil society in Ukraine is, although under severe stress, very active and plays an important role in providing people with their basic needs and safeguarding their human rights. Civil society in Ukraine is still functioning even in a situation of full-scale invasion and warfare, with constant shelling and unpredictable attacks on infrastructure and Ukrainian civilians. How is this possible?

Abstract [en]

The aim of the CBEES State of the Region Report 2021 is to map out the many varieties of far-right parties and movements in contemporary Central and Eastern Europe, a region typically described as marked by Euroscepticism, illiberalism and increasing tendencies towards authoritarianism. The report gathers in-depth analyses of the development and crucial features of far-right actors in 13 countries. It draws out certain common themes, but also highlights the diversity of far-right politics in the region.

In the individual contributions of this report, the participating researchers depict a nuanced picture of the far right and the relative importance of, for example, the legacy of nationalist dissident movements, exile groups and organizations, and far-right actors’ diferent notions of empires, civilizations, spheres of identities, powers, and oppositions such as east and west, and north and south; all play a role both in relation to the current political agenda and to the memory or narratives of the past.

In sum, we are witnessing a general turn away from the pro-European liberalism towards a more isolationist or protectionist – not to say xenophobic – nationalism.

The report is the second in a series of annual reports from CBEES (Centre for Baltic and East European Studies), reporting and refecting on the social and political developments in the Baltic Sea Region and Central and Eastern Europe, each year from a new and topical perspective. The overall purpose with this initiative is to ofer a publication that will be of great interest to fellow researchers, policy makers, stakeholders, and the general public.

Abstract [en]

Democratic backsliding is occurring in the region alongside altered forms of attack on freedom of speech and shrinking space for dialogues and free exchange of ideas. This trend has been observed in several reports during 2021.

Abstract [sv]

Lagom till att Södertörns högskola fyller 25 år kommer denna betraktelse över hur högskolan växte fram och hur tvär- och mångvetenskapliga utbildningsprogram utvecklades.

Författaren Sören Jansson beskriver hur man ville bygga något nytt, en högskola utan institutioner och fakulteter.

Intervjuer, arkivmaterial och egna observationer ger en levande bild av en hur en annorlunda högskola hittar sin form.

Abstract [en]

The CBEES State of the Region Report 2020 reveals disturbing tendencies to control and politicize the past in several countries in Central and Eastern Europe. Also, the report documents the great extent to which authoritarian and authoritarian-leaning governments actively intervene in how crucial parts of their country’s history are to be written, taught, researched, remembered, and commemorated – or neglected and ignored. Furthermore, the report discusses the failure of some governments to deal with restitution for past injustices, and the way some politicians forbid access to important state archives, hinder the teaching of the history of contemporary events, or withdraw funding to or even close down independent research institutions altogether.
