Internal Events

At the workshop invited participants will discuss the CRC projects dealing with policy diffusion and policy learning in post-socialist countries, focusing on selected social policy fields (esp. health care). Additionally, there will be a thematic discussion about conceptual approaches to the international transfer of policy ideas.

In a separate panel Mitchel Orenstein will present his Social Impact of Transition (SIT) Index for discussion.

Finally, synergies between the CRC projects and the external experts' research will be discussed to define areas of future cooperation.
