The states of Central and Eastern Europe have, to different extents and with varying levels of success, engaged in the transition from authoritarian rule. The (re-) construction of democratic, law-based governance has turned out to be a lengthy and - at times - frustrating process. The agenda for post-communist reform contains many entries, yet a transition-blue-print is not available. The papers collected in this volume explore the implications of the transition process in various areas. While not all aspects of post-communist law are covered, several crucial issues receive an in-depth treatment. These are: the development of (supra-) governmental systems, the procuracy, minority rights, contract law, land ownership and industrial property rights. The various contributors to this volume illustrate the problems in, and the potential of, these policy areas.
