WELCOME

The Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies promotes scholarship to better understand the conditions and policies fostering transformations from authoritarian rule to democracy. It also educates new generations of practitioners who can apply their learning and experience to help extend democratic freedoms. Initially focusing on transitions in Europe and Eurasia, it will subsequently expand its scope to other emerging democracies across the globe.

Inaugurated in 2008, WCED works alongside the Center for European Studies and Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies and in association with the Ronald and Eileen Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia.
