The main focus of the collection is on present-day socio-economic and cultural developments and their political framework conditions in Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe. You will find literature on the theory of art and art history, exhibition catalogues, cultural theory and policy, social developments, economics and finance, social banking and social entrepreneurship, management and marketing, discourses on minorities and on gender, philanthropy, demographics and migration. There is also a department for fiction writing from the region. German and English language media are to be found in the collection.
