Political Mobilization in East Central and Southeast Europe
Part two of the double-conference of the Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe – Institute of the Leibniz Association (Marburg) and the Institute
Both parts of this double-conference aim at a central contemporary as well as historical problem of European politics: which forms of mobilisation are employed by political parties and movements in times of crisis and which consequences have these mobilisation strategies for the respective political systems? The conference’s focus lies on the regions in East, East Central and South Europe.
As it has already been the case at the first conference at Marburg, the research context covers economic and social crises (for example the agricultural crises of the 1840ies and the late 19th century, the world economic crisis of the 1930ies, the crises of state socialism, the period of economic transformation in the 1990ies as well as the current global economic crisis). Other topics are the periods of stabilisation of societies after experiences of war or revolution (for example the periods after the Napoleonic Wars, the revolutions of 1848/49, the two world wars, the communist revolutions or after the collapse of the federative states in the early 1990ies).
