schema:description"Informal systems should be of special concern to corruption and organized crime specialists in any geographical context. Organized crime is inevitably undergirded by informal systems, and typically depends on corruption. Informal systems should be of even more interest to analysts of these phenomena in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, given the central role of the previous communist state and the informal systems that had developed in conjunction with it. As the command structures of the state broke down, informal groups and social networks were well positioned to step into the vacated space. The legacies both of communism and more than a decade of "reform" have encouraged the development of informal groups and networks in at least two ways: as suggestive idioms such as "mafia" and "clan" that resonate throughout the region, and as powerful agents reorganizing state and market institutions. Far from disappearing, informal systems, including those underpinning organized crime and corruption, have played a pivotal role in many "reform" processes of the 1990s, notably those associated with privatization and economic restructuring."
