Edwin Rekosh, ed., PILnet (then Public Interest Law Initiative) and Open Society Institute Local Government Initiative, 2005

The Vicious Circle presents the results of targeted studies of administrative institutions and procedures in four countries — Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, and Poland — exploring aspects of administrative functioning and available remedies for administrative abuse. 


Each study examines different aspects of administrative functioning and abuse and proposes a set of recommendations for improving remedies.  By focusing on abuses and remedies, the collected reports elucidate the relationship between the availability of reliable remedies for administrative abuse and the degree of public trust in state institutions.

PILnet (then Public Interest Law Institute) and Jagiellonian University, edited by Leah Wortham and Daniela Ikawa, Krakow, 2010.

This book is a unique contribution to understanding the issues confronting law schools in Central and Eastern Europe and countries of the former Soviet Union as they seek to ensure that their programs meet the needs of 21st century lawyers.


The book is unusual in two ways. First, the authors of the articles in the book are largely faculty at universities in the region. As noted in the preface, despite a plethora of initiatives to reform legal education in Central and Eastern Europe and countries of the former Soviet Union, there has been little literature on the topic coming from the region itself. Second, the articles address structural issues as well as pedagogical ones. (Barbara Schatz, Clinical Professor of Law, Columbia Law School)

Edwin Rekosh and Maxine Sleeper, eds., PILnet (then Public Interest Law Initiative), Budapest, 2004

This source book represents a collection of essays that document the struggle for the integration of schools in Central and Eastern Europe.

Taken together, they aim to elucidate the complexity of the phenomenon of educational segregation. The issue is explored from a number of different perspectives: the relationship of segregation to discrimination, early efforts to integrate education in Bulgaria and Hungary, tools for advocating change and pedagogical issues.
