Arms Industry Transformation and Integration: The Choices of East Central Europe Arms Industry Transformation and Integration
The Choices of East Central Europe

Yudit Kiss

The defence industry was one of the pillars of the command economy system in East Central Europe. After the end of the cold war the sector went through dramatic changes: it was radically downsized, reorganized and restructured according to the needs of the emerging new socio-economic systems. This book presents a comparative analysis of the defence industries of six East Central European countries—Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia—describing how they adjusted to the changed political and economic environment in both the domestic and international contexts. Their experiences provide valuable lessons for governments and companies in the post-2008 global economy.
