European Union as a critical juncture of Central and Eastern Europe
27.11.2020/ Vít Hloušek and Petr Fiala published a paper in European Political Science in which they discuss European integration as a new critical juncture in Central and Eastern Europe.

Vít and Petr show that there has been a contradiction between nationalism and liberal concept of democracy since the mid-nineteenth century and that this contradiction manifests in critical junctures based on European integration too.
