Book Presentation: "Three Social Science Disciplines in Central and Eastern Europe - Handbook on Economics, Political Science and Sociology (1989-2001)
10 October 2002

Book Presentation and Discussion
Coordinated by Andrew Sors, European Commission, DG Research
Participants: Gábor Klaniczay, Collegium Budapest, Max Kaase, International University, Bremen, Ulrike Becker, IZ, Berlin, Vera Sparschuch, Berlin

Participants at the January 2002 conference of the project "The State of Three Social Science Disciplines in Central and Easter Europe" discussed the final version of the report on 30 countries. The handbook presented here contains the outcome of this discussion, the detailed and edited papers, and a few lectures. The project itself has motivated a high number of leading social scientists in Eastern and Western Europe. The objective of the project was to launch a general theoretical debate over the position of social sciences also by comparing how these sciences developed in the individual countries of the region after 1989-90.

The project was sponsored by the 5th Framework Program of the European Commission with the title 'Improving Human Research Potential and the Socio-Economic Knowledge Base'. There is a CD-rom attached to the handbook with important data and the addresses of related institutions in the region. The objective is to make it a reference handbook for all those who are interested in social sciences in Central-Eastern Europe. As a "living" and evolving data base, its contents will also be displayed in a homepage handled by IZ Berlin, Collegium Budapest and the Paris-based Maison des Sciences de l'Homme.

The book presentation is also related to the conference held in Collegium Budapest on 10-11 Otober 2002 with the title "Social Sciences and Humanities in the European Research Area - Perspectives for Central and Eastern Europe".
