This paper examines the empirical validity of the hypothesis of uncovered interest parity (UIP) using data from five Central and Eastern European countries with floating exchange rates for the period 2003-2013. The analysis includes forward-looking as well as static expectations and also allows for different types of structural breaks. The variable representing deviations from UIP is stationary when expectations are forward-looking, but typically not when expectations are static even when structural breaks are incorporated. The results underscore the importance of the assumptions when the UIP hypothesis is tested.
