This volume contains the findings of the research project "Institutional Change in Social Security: Pension Reforms in Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic," which was completed in early 1999. Mnller, a research fellow with the Frankfurt Institute for Transformation Studies at the European University Viadrina, examines the partial privatization path that Poland and Hungary chose, and compares their Latin American-styled methods to those of the Czech Republic (which fall well within the boundaries of the Bismarckian-Beveridgean pension traditions). In particular, she looks at which structural-institutional and actor-related factors account for radial pension reform. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Book Description Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This highly topical book focuses on a particularly interesting area of post-1989 social policy. Existing public pension systems in Central-Eastern Europe underwent fundamental change as Latin-American style pension reforms were adopted. Such radical change in retirement provision defied conventional wisdom among scholars of the political economy of pension reform, suggesting a need for fresh research. This unique study accepts the challenge, focusing on the divergent pension reform experiences of Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.This study was granted the EACES Award 2000, a bi-annual prize awarded in the area of comparative economic systems and economics of transition.It has also been awarded the Ed. A. Hewett Prize by the AAASS (American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies). Seller Inventory # BTE9781840642384
