Policy Experiments, Failures and Innovations takes a policy studies perspective in considering post-communist EU member states’ experiences since accession. The book analyses policy transfer processes and expands the new and growing sub-field of policy failure by interrogating the binary ideas of ‘failure’ and ‘success’ in the context of the Central Eastern European (CEE) transition, democratic consolidation and European Union membership. The book was edited Agnes Batory, Andrew Cartwright and Diane Stone and many of the contributing authors have a long-standing connection with CEU and the Center for Policy Studies: D. Adascalitei, D. Craciun, S. Domonkos, H. Grabbe, A. Kemmerling, A. Krizsan, K. Makszin, L. Matei, G. Medve-Balint, B.G. Peters, S. Svensson, A. Tetenyi, S. Torotcoi, V. Zentai. The book is meant to illustrate 15 years of the CEU CPS research agenda.
