Summary In 2002, Herwig Reiter started a PhD project in political and social sciences to study the phenomenon of unemployment in post-Soviet Lithuania. Unemployment became a problem after the collapse of socialist regimes that followed the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, when many of these countries transformed into welfare democracies and market economies. Full employment and the constitutionally guaranteed right to labour disappeared together with the planned economy and were replaced by uncertainties regarding one's status in societies marked by unemployment. This case study discusses the methodological and practical challenges and choices involved in this PhD project
