About this book

This volume examines the property transformations in post-communist Central Eastern Europe (CEE) and focuses on the role of restitution and privatisation in such transformations. It argues that the theorisation of ‘restitution’ in post-communist CEE is incomplete in the transitional justice scholarship and in the literature on correction of historical wrongs.

The book also argues that, for a more complete theorisation of (post-communist) restitution, the transformations of property in post-communist societies ought to be studied in a more holistic way. The main legal vehicles used for such transformations, privatisation and restitution, should not be studied separately and in abstract, but in their reciprocal relationship, and in connection to the dimension of justice which each could achieve. Finally, the book integrates ‘privatisation’ in a theory of post-communist transformation of property.

Reviews

“This is an important book, providing valuable material about capitalist transitions and legacies in postcommunist societies and economies. It offers a distinctive framework for theorising post-communist privatisation and restitution. The author provides grounds for a reconsideration of property regime transformation in transitional justice theory.” (Rafał Riedel, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 70 (3), April, 2018)
