The development of civil society has varied greatly across the former Soviet Union. The Baltic states have achieved a high level of integration with the West and European Union membership, while some regions in Russia lag far behind. Now for the first time there is a comparative study of civil society and democratization across post-Soviet national borders. Acknowledging the enormous variation throughout the region, the book offers unique data on developments in Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Applying an innovative analytical framework derived from theories of democratization, civil society, social movements and transnational relations, the researchers have formulated broader comparisons and generalisations without neglecting the specific post-Soviet context. The book provides a systematic comparison across sectors as well as nations, and includes chapters on NGOs, the state and conflict, and transnationalisation. Quantitative survey data is combined with qualitative interviews and case study research to both confirm previous findings about the weakness of post-communist civil society and to qualify previous research.

In the course of the 1990s, a variety of regional initiatives and associations emerged in the Baltic Sea Region. As a result, the region features an extremely high concentration of regionalist structures, which add up to a tight network of cooperative arrangements that all label themselves as 'Baltic.' This dissertation looks closely at this specific regional phenomenon â?? the 'Baltic Sea Conundrum' â?? by employing a comparative approach. Looking at the cases of Sweden and Finland â?? their political performance as both regional stakeholders and members of the EU â?? the book shows how, in recent years, regional agendas have intersected with European issues and vice versa.

In the postD9/11 era of heightened security awareness, conflicting strategies for containing and combating security risks have strained relations between the United States and the European Union despite common goals. Atlantic Bridges argues that the U.S. must resist the temptation to focus its diplomatic efforts on bilateral agreements with those European countries in closest alignment to it, and instead use its dependable and durable partners among the central and eastern European states to develop more predictable and productive relations with the EU for the sake of long-term stability.

This year's report focuses on the lives of migrant women, who constitute almost half of all international migrants worldwide, some 95 million. Every year these women working overseas send hundreds of millions of dollars in remittances back to their homes and communities. These funds go to feed and educate children, provide health care, build homes, foster small businesses and generally improve living standards for loved ones left behind. For host countries, the labour of migrant women is so embedded in the fabric of society that it goes virtually unnoticed. But migration, whilst offering opportunities for economic advancement and relief from oppression and discrimination, has its darker side: enslavement of trafficking victims and the exploitation of domestic workers.
