In 2009, 20 years after the democratisation of Central and Eastern Europe, it seems that social reforms have been already undertaken and the welfare systems of Central and Eastern European countries have been established and have gained their specific shapes.


Charles University Faculty of Law in collaboration with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung is hosting a conference that will analyse, and potentially evaluate from a theoretical point of view, whether we are facing a new social welfare model and if so, what its specific characteristics are. The conference shall deal also with the question of effectiveness and level of success of social reforms in Central and Eastern European countries and identify some new perspectives of social states in these countries from the point of view of new challenges. Researchers from universities and research institutes across Europe are kindly invited to consider the above issues and questions and to present their papers.

Papers are called on the following panel themes:

  • Privatisation of wellness and socialisation of risks: future of pension reforms in Europe – experiences in Eastern Europe and similarities with old Member States
  • New solidarity in health care in ageing societies
  • Equal opportunities - tradition in post- communist countries and implementation of EC law
  • Reformed social states in the EU and new integration of ethnic and national minorities and other potentially excluded groups
  • Flexicurity - a solution for new member states? Style of current reforms in Central and Eastern Europe


Papers will be published in a co-edited book.

Deadline for registration: June 30, 2009

Deadline for sending papers: September 15, 2009
