The Series Central and Eastern European Studies (CEES) publishes innovative and interdisciplinary research perspectives on contemporary social and political developments in Central Europe, the Baltic Countries, Russia and Eastern Europe, including the Caucasus. The Series welcomes studies authored by early-career and senior researchers, policy analysts and practitioners, including both internationally recognized authors and emerging regional voices. CEES both analyses and promotes ongoing processes of transition and transformation, historical legacies and international relations, exploring the linkages between regionalism in Central, Baltic and Eastern Europe, and wider European cooperation and integration. CEES combines cutting edge policy research, interdisciplinary approaches and innovative and provocative thinking which will be of interest to a wide range of readers, including policy analysts, scholars, policy makers, diplomats, and journalists.

We are glad to launch our open selection of manuscript proposals for the 2022-2024 CEES plan of publications.


CEES selection is open to both early-career researchers and senior scholars working on Central and Eastern European studies. Research monographs and edited collections are both warmly welcome. Among the main themes that will be explored in 2022-2024 CEES plan of publications, we may mention:

  • Investigation of domestic transformations in contemporary social, cultural and political dynamics in Central and Eastern Europe.


  • Interdisciplinary work on Central and Eastern Europe intersecting International Relations, European Studies and Cultural Studies.


  • New achievements in historical studies, based on archival research, which could open new perspectives on contemporary developments in Central and Eastern Europe.


  • The geographic scope of CEES book series covers Central Europe, the Baltic Countries, the Russian Federation and Eastern Europe, including Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine and the Southern Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia). Country-based studies and/or comparative researches are warmly welcome by the Board. All CEES volumes are peer-reviewed.
