Governments in East Central Europe have long relied on radical neoliberal reforms as a strategy to leave socialism behind. In this episode, moderated by RECET's founding director Philipp Ther, our guest Prof. Dr. Dorothee Bohle discusses how neoliberalism became resilient once again. She examines the relationship between authoritarianism and neoliberalism and argues for a gendered perspective on the topic.
Dorothee Bohle is a professor at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the European University Institute. She is co-author of Capitalist Diversity on Europe's Periphery (2012), for which she won the Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Social Science Research.
