Summary/Abstract: Over the last few years a number of fundamentally important events have taken place which – given the extent to which they were not unexpected, to which we could prepare for them – make it possible for us to give clear and unambiguous answers to the questions arising from the radical changes in the Central European geopolitical situation. The processes of empire-building and institutional collapse have played roles in determining the chances of success for the countries of the region. The author traces these processes back to explain how the meanings of modernization and Westernization have been interpreted in Central and South-East Europe. The following of the Western model is a terribly long and painful process, which is full of breaks and attempts to restart. This must always be taken into consideration when we are trying to understand the current situation of Eastern Europe.
