Lithuania Country Report


Krupavicius, Alvis; Zvaliauskas, Giedrius (2000). Lithuania Country Report. c2d Working Papers Series 5, Centre for Democracy Studies Aarau (ZDA) at the University of Zurich.

Abstract

If we would like to find out a single and most important feature of individual political behaviour in Eastern and Central Europe in 1989, of course, it should be an unconventional political activity and direct political actions. Altogether, a marathon of referendums in 1992- 1996, instead of encouraging of participatory culture, stimulated the protest behaviour in Lithuania's politics, when citizens became politically active only if they have had an object to oppose certain decisions rather than they were interested to support positively one or another position, or discuss different political alternatives. In general, the basis of electoral mobilization was rather protest politics than politics of participation and support from the very beginning of re-democratization in Lithuania.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
