The paper is an updated version of my paper for the BASEES/ICCEES European Congress at Cambridge and examines the factors that have shaped CEE presidents’ perception of their office and how this perception influenced their behaviour in office.

Paper accepted – BASEES/ICCEES European Congress, Cambridge 2013

My paper ‘The next generation: Presidential predecessors, constitutions and the evolution of incumbents’ vision of the presidency’ has been accepted for presentation at the European Congress of the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) and the International Council for Central and East European Studies (ICCEES). The congress will take place from 5-8 April 2013 at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge University.

In my paper, I examine which factors influence the way presidents in Central and Eastern Europe perceive their role and how this perception has evolved over the last years. In particular I focus on the differences between the first generation of democratic presidents and their successors, i.e. ‘the second generation’.
