The Transatlantic Steering Group (TSG), a key part of FPRI’s Project on Democratic Transitions, is composed of European and American non-government leaders, scholars and former policy officials experienced in post-authoritarian reform. The TSG bridges the stubborn and unhelpful divides that have slowed the integration of information now available on post-communist transitions and its translation into practical action. The TSG is chaired by Ambassador Adrian A. Basora and is assisted by a research staff based at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and supplemented by a diverse circle of experts from relevant disciplines. The Transatlantic Steering Group launched the Project in a mid-January 2006 conference that yielded significant consensus among practitioners and scholars on the key factors that have led to successful CEE transitions and on their potential transferability.
