Recently regional studies in economic and social history have gained significant momentum. Eastern Europe is joining this rising tide in international cooperation. The WEast workshop provides a friendly and professional environment for researchers working on the economic history of the region looking to share their findings and gain specialist feedback from their peers. The prime objective of the workshop is to facilitate the interaction between the scholars from the ‘East’ and the ‘West’, as well as, exchange knowledge of the available sources and the state-of-the art methodologies.
The purpose of this year’s WEast workshop in Belgrade is on explaining Eastern European growth patterns in their socio-economic context.  We welcome proposals dealing with these and closely-related topics written both from the perspective of a historian or an economist.
