Title: POLITICAL COMPETITION AND IDEOLOGICAL DIMENSIONS IN CENTRAL EASTERN EUROPE
 
Author: Radoslaw Markowski, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw
 
Description: In this paper I explore the referents of the spatial left-right metaphors both in descriptive as well as explanatory terms for Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland.

I argue that Eastern Europe is by no means homogeneous, but exhibits different levels and types of ideological articulation. Social structure and social mobility affect post-socialist constructions of politics everywhere, but historical experiences and institutional practices --such as previous experiences with democracy, the recent pathways to democracy, and the new political institutions-- leave their imprint on the articulation of political beliefs as well.
