The book is addressed to journalists, non-governmental organizations and also for public. Even though the Euro-Atlantic integration is the priority of foreign and security policy of Ukraine, the part of public is still not sufficiently informed and is subjected to unreal myths.

The Slovak-Ukrainian neighbors dialog about integration is the outcome of cooperation among Institute for Public Affairs (Oľga Gyárfášová), Research Centre of SFPA (Alexander Duleba and Ivo Samson) and Centre for European and North-Atlantic relations (Róbert Ondrejcsák) at the Slovak side and for the Ukrainian side Kiev Centre for peace, conversion and foreign policy (Alexander Sushko) and Odessa University (Denis Kuzmin). The dialog is taking place not only at the pages of the book but also throughout the series of round tables, seminars and lectures of Slovak experts in Ukrainian regions.

In the years 2006-2008 IVO experts conducted series of seminars and public talks in Kiev, Donetsk, Odessa, Simferopol, Dnepropetrovsk focused on the issue of Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine.
