Jeff Lovitt, the chief executive officer of the Policy Association for an Open Society (PASOS), was also present on this meeting. In the first part of the presentation Oľga Gyárfášová depicted results of cross-cultural comparative research in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary. In the second part Zora Bútorová focused on how people perceive the Velvet Revolution and its actors and compared the present situation with the period before November 1989.
