 The talk builds on several points of view coming from a world-systems perspective on Central and Eastern European politics. If we think the internal organization of CEE societies in terms of their long history of world-economic and geopolitical integration, what does that imply for the understanding of politics and social movements in this region? Focusing on politics and social movements in Hungary and Romania since the turning point of the global crisis of 1973, the talk shows how different constellations of integration into the same global systemic cycle engender different variations of politics within similarly limited spaces of maneuver. A special emphasys will be put on long-term characteristics of middle class politics within the region, its variations in the two countries across the regime change, and a comparison between anti-austerity movements in Hungary, Romania, and what has been termed as the "democratic anti-austerity movements" of the 2011 wave in Western and Southern Europe.

Agnes Gagyi is a social movement researcher, focusing on connections between contemporary and historical movements in Central and Eastern Europe, and the social, economic and political aspects of the region’s long-term world market integration.
