Thirty years ago a zeitgeist of democratisation took over all three Baltic Republics, including Lithuania, like a storm. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Baltic countries restored statehood and implemented all necessary political, economic and social reforms. The focus of this article, however, is a social context of politics and democra...

A number of recent research works have used supervised machine learning approaches with a bag-of-words to classify political texts –in particular, speeches and debates– by their ideological position, expressed with a party membership. However, our classification task is more complex due to the several reasons. First, we deal with the Lithuanian lan...

In last two decades, most countries of Central and Eastern Europe have witnessed an ongoing development of democratic governance, and have thereby acquired a status of stable democracies. They no more face problems connected with post-communist transition and the challenges they have to deal with arise rather from present political situation. Curre...

We present the first statistical dependency parsing results for Lithuanian, a morphologically rich language in the Baltic branch of the Indo-European family. Using a greedy transition-based parser, we obtain a labeled attachment score of 74.7 with gold morphology and 68.1 with predicted morphology (77.8 and 72.8 unlabeled). We investigate the usefu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Despite many years of research and many effective methods proposed to solve topic classification tasks for such widely used languages as English, there is no clear answer whether these methods are suitable for languages that are substantially different. We attempt to solve a topic classification task for Lithuanian, a relatively resource-scarce lan...
Chapter
In den späten 1980er und frühen 1990er Jahren stellte Claus Offe fest, dass das postkommunistische Europa eine „dreifachen Transition“ erlebte: Demokratisierung, ökonomische Transition sowie der Prozess des State Building (Offe 1992, S. 14). Die baltischen Staaten stellen Beispiele für eine erfolgreiche demokratische Transition nach 1989 dar. Sie g...
Chapter
Citizen participation in decision-making is a key element in the understanding and practice of contemporary democracy. However, ‘while there is agreement that citizens should play an informed and active role in the governance system, there is wide disagreement as to the forms and the extent that citizen participation should take’ (Zimmerman, 1986,...

Having gained independence following the collapse of the Russian Empire, at the end of the First World War, the three Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania set about constructing their states. In writing their constitutions in the early 1920s, all three states chose parliamentary models with clauses for the use of direct democracy. Howeve...

This chapter examines the changes in women's representation in Lithuania. Women are expected to make significant inroads in their quest for political power. Although the number of women in political power declined from the Soviet period, those who are active in politics have been able to carve out more authentic places for themselves, with meaningf...
Article

If we would like to find out a single and most important feature of individual political behaviour in Eastern and Central Europe in 1989, of course, it should be an unconventional political activity and direct political actions. Altogether, a marathon of referendums in 1992- 1996, instead of encouraging of participatory culture, stimulated the prot...
Article
The development of political science was closely connected to the democratic changes and the restoration of statehood at the end of the 1980s in Lithuania.
