    CEE in Context: Identity, History, CEE in the World
    The aim of this lecture is to debate the roots and outcomes of a specific CEE identity. Recent developments, influenced by systemic transformation, democratisation and Europeanisation are discussed. The process of change is perceived form two different angles – as an adaptation to institutional structures of the European Union, and a system of norms and values. Among the key questions addressed in this lecture are: Does CEE have a common identity? If so, are there any distinguishing features of this identity? Have collective identities in CEE been subject to change through overlapping processes of transformation, eastern enlargement and Europeanisation?
