The publication is a compilation of studies presented at the conference titled “First Months of the Government of the Slovak Republic: the Public, Political Players, and the Media” that was held under the auspices of the Institute for Public Affairs in conjunction with the International Republican Institute in March of 2003. The findings presented in this publication are based on public opinion research conducted in February 2003. The work maps the public perceptions in regards to country’s development after the parliamentary elections of 2002. At the same time, it offers many interpretations and analysis of public opinion, activities of political players, effectiveness of governance, strategies in preparation and implementation of reforms, political communication, and the coverage in the media. The authors aim to identify factors that influence the perception of country’s development, as well as explain the political situation in the country after the elections. Additionally, the authors describe the post-election realities of the political arena while attempting to predict its probable development in the near future. Including the contributions from Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Poland, the publication gains a comparative dimension within the context of the Visegrad 4 countries.
