Central and Eastern Europe present more than a trivial challenge to the Developed Nations of the world as well as to themselves. Will they represent new markets, new sources of low-cost labour, or populations taking every action and avenue conceivable to emigrate to the Developed Nations? Will they be integrated into the Western economies and political structures or lose themselves into defensive postures and pose threats to the Developed Nations? This new series is intended to present current analyses of political and economic developments and trends in this crucial part of the world.
