Vít Dostál shall talk at “Visegrad– Democratic and foreign policy challenges conference” organized by Political Capital and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.
Dostál shall talk at the panel Democratic backsliding in the region – different patterns in the V4 countries (10.20-11.35)
Since 2010 Viktor Orbán has completely reshaped the legal, political, economic and media structures in Hungary, and he built a hybrid regime he defines as an “illiberal state” within the European Union. His example has been followed by Law and Justice in several areas in Poland, which aims to establish a power political model similar to that of Fidesz in Poland. At the same time, Robert Fico is trying to move Slovakia closer to the increasingly transforming inner core of the European Union. Regarding the Czech Republic, it is a question whether it will start walking down the illiberal path after its upcoming election? The main question the panel will try to answer is where the Warsaw-Budapest express will stop.
