This on-line debate aims to contribute to the discussion about the Czech-Polish perspectives on the EU and their cooperation in the EU. It will enable an exchange of opinions between the Czech and Polish experts on current developments of the mutual bilateral relations, as well as of the European project and help identify areas where mutual cooperation could be strengthened.

Although the public support for the EU was strong both in Poland and in the Czech Republic when they joined the European Union, their positions towards the EU differ significantly nowadays. While the Czechs belong to the biggest eurosceptics and only 46 % are satisfied with their EU membership, almost 90 % of Poles claim that they are supporters of the EU.
