The Eastern European countries, the Baltic States in particular, are facing difficult problems in the course of their economic and political transition: industrial decline, unemployment, institutional change, conversion of industries, etc. But most Eastern European states have available a well-developed human capital, so that scientific and technical cooperation with western states can facilitate the resolution of parts of these problems.
The contributors to Transformation, Cooperation, and Conversion address their analytical findings and proposals to political decision makers in the East and West. The book provides new insights into the processes of transition and transformation and is therefore useful to all those who are scientifically or politically engaged in East-West relations.
