Abstract

This monograph is based on research collected in Hungary, Macedonia, Serbia and Bulgaria. The research culminates in the exploration of the impact of the transition from communism and war on everyday life of women and men. The book also dives into how everyday life and gender relate to changes that affect women's vulnerability to domestic violence and trafficking in women. The argument that violence against women in post-communist and war affected societies is  connected to the increase of social stratification, economic hardship, unemployment, instability, uncertainty and related social stresses, changes in gender identity and structural inequalities brought by new world order.
