Summary This volume offers readers a multi-layer analysis of issues of law and society in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Ukraine. This collection of thought-provoking essays deals with a wide range of subject matter including constitutional, administrative, civil, and criminal law, as well as aspects of legal culture, corruption, corporate social responsibility, and informal practices of judiciaries. Throughout the volume, readers are given not only a comparative perspective of current practices but are also offered a historical glimpse of law and philosophy in the region. The conclusions and analysis offered by these authors - from the ''East'\' as well as from the ''West'' - are supported by survey data, literature, legislation, and court practice in the region and abroad.
