Abstract
The disintegration of the Soviet Union was a vast experience, not solely for the former members and inhabitants of the Soviet Union, but also for the rest of the world.

The disintegration of the Soviet Union was a vast experience, not solely for the former members and inhabitants of the Soviet Union, but also for the rest of the world. This thesis examines Estonia and Uzbekistan's different experience with transition. By examining three different aspects of transition I seek to explain Estonia and Uzbekistan's different outcome of transition. Estonia has since their independence been fully aware of the process that started with their independence. They have reformed both the political and economic system, the industry is privatized, institutions democratic and Estonia is today a member of the European Union. The process began at an early stage and reforms have been characterized by consistently and awareness, always with the European Community looking over their sholder. Uzbekistan has experienced little progress in its political and

economic development. There have not been clear long-term goals while

restructuring of the state. The political and economic elite are all in all basically the same as during the Soviet era with president Karimov at the front line. Institutions have not changed significantly since the years of communism, privatization of key industries is absent and the regional cooperation in Central Asia has failed. (Less)
