AMO and the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies in cooperation with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung organize an international expert roundtable.

Founded in 1991, the Visegrad Group has established itself on the European scene in the course of the past 25 years as a noticeable coalition able to pursue its interests. However, the Visegrad Group countries send mixed signals to the debate on the future of the EU. Slovakia – the only Eurozone member in the V4 – confirms that it wants to be part of EU’s core. The Czech Republic is reluctant to join the Eurozone, yet demands to be fully involved into all reform talks. On the other hand, Poland and Hungary insist on a profound reform of the EU including the Treaty change. Moreover, the divergences of the sectoral policies seem to mount up as well, as the voting on the Posted Workers Directive showed in October 2017.

Thus, what does the Visegrad Group actually think? Results of the project Trends of the Visegrad European Policy will be presented and debated at the event. The project comprised of a poll conducted among 450 top V4’s EU policy-, decision-, and opinion-makers, which will bring a unique insight into their views.
