We are very sorry to announce the death of Ljubo Sirc CBE, founder of the CRCE. He died peacefully on 1st December. Many thanks to all those who are sending messages.
As the CRCE forges ahead in this new century, the demand for research into the transitional economics of Central and Eastern Europe has never been greater. The opening up of new markets for commerce and services, as well as concern over the political evolution — or otherwise — of the post-communist states, has ensured that academic, commercial and popular interest in these subjects continues to grow.
The CRCE is a charitable education trust, financed by donations and subscriptions. Since 1983, the CRCE has provided a unique forum for academics, regional specialists, journalists and others to participate in discussions on individual countries, as well as the opportunity to meet reformist economists and politicians involved in the transition process. Indeed, many young economists from Russia and Eastern Europe whose work was first supported by the CRCE have since emerged as key figures in the post-communist world, and attend our meetings whenever possible.
