Various policy challenges, such as building viable economic systems in global competition, capacities for keeping social piece or justice amidst economic restructuring or downfall, or pursuing generational justice at times of demographic transformations, can be associated and partly explained by the model of capitalism that the societies in Central and Eastern Europe are building in the post-Cold-War period. The CPS had been engaged in and planning to launch new initiatives that investigate cultural encounters in the European economy, economic policy and sciences in the context of post-socialist transformations and economic and cultural globalization. The Center has also started to contribute to comparative inquiries on the transformations of the labor relations and the governance of multinational companies and their subsidiaries in different sectors in Central and Easter Europe.
