This chapter explores the factors that shaped patterns of economic protest across 18 European post-communist countries during the Great Recession. It explains how the Great Recession altered the level and nature of economic protest in the region and why patterns of protest varied considerably across countries. Strikes and ethnic protests decreased overall. Economic protests increased as a percentage of total protests but focused mostly on austerity and cutbacks rather than poor performance.

Keywords:   protest, post-communist countries, recession, austerity
