History

TOL was established in April 1999, the month after the publication of the final issue of its print predecessor, Transitions magazine. (The print magazine was first published in 1994 by the Open Media Research Institute, a joint venture between Radio Free Europe and the Open Society Institute.) Four of the former print magazine‚Äôs staff members established Transitions Online as a means of keeping the widely respected, cross-border coverage of the magazine alive.
