MOVING TOWARDS URBAN LIFE (continued…) C) Democracy Since the fall of Communism, Eastern Europe has had to overcome lots of obstacles to try to obtain democracy This has not been helped by the ethnic conflict in the region Many dictators have ruled many of the countries of Eastern Europe in the past; but progress has slowly been made towards democracy and peace in the region For example, in 2000, the Yugoslav people forced a dictator to accept election results that voted him out of office Another example is Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu ; who was finally overthrown and publicly executed by Romanian soldiers in 1989

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
