    Research Interest 1

    The fall of the Berlin Wall offered Dr Swain a unique opportunity to supplement his PhD work on collectivisation in Hungary with research into agricultural decollectivisation. He has headed large-scale collaborative research projects investigating rural economy and society in East Central Europe and the Balkans, while maintaining a direct personal research interest in the Hungarian case. He has also published on political developments both before and after the revolutions of 1989.
