Invitation: Expert Discussion on the Future of the EU - Perspectives from the Visegrad Group


November 15, 2013

Even if the EU evolves towards a deeper integrated entity, it is likely that not all the current Members States will be involved in the same way. This presumption leads to several questions for the expert discussion:

What influence would it have in the Visegrad cooperation? Is it an opportunity or a challenge?

Is the Visegrad group a useful platform for cooperation in the EU issues in general or just in natural particular policies?

What strategic interests these countries share and where are they moving apart?

What will the post-election situation in Germany imply for this region and its future in the EU?
