520 |a This article deals with one major aspect of the transformation of former socialist societies: the reallocation of persons in the occupational and class structure via individual mobility processes. In East Germany, this transformation occurred within the unique context of the legal, political and economic incorporation of the former German Democratic Republic into the Federal Republic of Germany. Theoretically, we develop hypotheses on the society of origin, the society of destination, and the transformation process itself as well as hypotheses on the determinants of success and failure in the transition process. Empirically, we rely on the East German part of the German Life History Study (GLHS), a representative study of the East German women and men born in 1929-31, 1939-41, 1951-53 and 1959-61. Our analyses focus especially on the transition process between 1989 and 1993. Among the unexpected results are the high degree of occupational stability among those able to remain in the labour market and the high rate of downward mobility combined with a low rate of unemployment among former managers and affiliates of the Communist regime.
