The New Role of Central and Eastern Europe in International Democracy Support
http://www.carnegieendowment.org/publications/?fa=view&id=44375
The democracy promotion efforts of these countries-countries that are still grappling with some domestic democracy issues of their own-have been limited in scope and inconsistent, ad hoc, and given a low priority at times. Still, these countries have very recent, in fact ongoing experience with democratization that gives them valuable expertise and perspectives that other donors do not have, and therefore special credibility in the eyes of recipients.
