Programm Herbst / Winter 2018/2019
Issue 3, 2018, offers a thematic section on “Corruption in Southeast Europe and Latin America” guest edited by Klaus Buchenau.
At the focus of the thematic section lie the differences as well as commonalities in the creation of the public mistrust which figures quite prominently in both Southeastern Europe and Latin America. Blendi Kajsiu (Medellín) compares the discourses on corruption of the prime minister of Albania Edi Rama and president Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia. Taking the example of a law prohibiting vote-buying in Brazil, Andrea Reis do Carmo (London) explores some of the ingredients necessary for successful mobilization against corruption. In contrast to their views of political or ‘grand’ corruption, many societies do not so harshly condemn everyday or ‘petty’ corruption, as is shown by the two contributions on informal extra payments in the healthcare systems of Hungary (Petra Burai, Halle) and Serbia (Ljiljana Pantović, Pittsburgh), respectively. The dilemmas of anti-corruption and the fact that consensus on how to fight corruption is difficult to reach are analysed by Alexandra Iancu (Bucharest), taking Romania as an example. And finally, Alena Ledeneva (London) displays strategies for future research on corruption.
In the Open Section, Bernd Buder (Berlin/Cottbus), programme director of the FilmFestival Cottbus – Festival of East European Cinema, writes about Georgian film. Georgia will be in focus both at the Cottbus FilmFestival and the Frankfurt Book Fair this year.

Südosteuropa. Journal of Politics and Society is an English-language, multidisciplinary journal for the exploration of critical societal issues and processes related to southeastern Europe after the systemic changes of 1989/90. It serves as a forum for current work in Southeast and East European Studies, including Political Science, Sociology, International Relations, Contemporary History, Economics, Anthropology, Law Studies, Gender Studies as well as Cultural Studies. All manuscripts are subject to a process of double-blind peer-reviewing. The journal welcomes comparative perspectives towards adjacent regions as well as analyses and theoretical issues with implications for other world areas. In addition, it features a book review section (accessible also online at recensio.net). Its geographical scope is the area that lies between the eastern Adriatic, the eastern Mediterranean, and the Black Sea.
The contributions to Sudosteuropa are indexed in the bibliography IBZ (Internationale Bibliographie der geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Zeitschriftenliteratur), the Worldwide Political Science Abstracts (WPSA), the International Political Science Abstracts (IPSA) and the Sociological Abstracts (SA). They are further listed in the database World Affairs Online and in the International Relations and Area Studies Gateway (IREON).
