The project purpose is to offer a comparative survey of European-policy trend setters’ (politicians, diplomats, journalists, experts) opinions in the V4 countries, providing a unique insight into the European policy cultures of the four states. It will examine, whether there are new areas for European-policy cooperation and where the V4 should not have excessive expectations. The results will help shaping internal cohesion of the V4 as well as building the new positive agenda, which the grouping lacks right now. It should also commence new discussion on the V4 future, based on solid data. It will also cover the relations of the V4 countries with Germany and the role of German European policy in the V4 countries.
The project will be implemented in cooperation with the Slovak Foreign Policy Association (Bratislava), CEU Centre for European Neighborhood Studies (Budapest), and Koszciuszko Institute (Cracow) and kindly supported by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.
