Issue no. 1, 2022, of Comparative Southeast European Studies is an open issue with contributions by Ioannis Tzortzis, Denisa Kostovicova et al., Andrei Crivenco and Sabine von Löwis, Chiara Bonfiglioli and Sara Zerić, Roswitha Kersten-Pejanić and Guido Hausmann.

The study by Crivenco and von Löwis on Transnistria is a rare example of a research gone contingent over night. Since 24 February many things are radically different — it is more unpredictable than ever what the future may hold.

The journal is published in open access and in print. You can find the online version here:
