Visegrad Elections 2010: Domestic Impact and European Consequences

The Institute for Public Affairs has issued a new publication Visegrad Elections 2010: Domestic Impact and European Consequences.

It is written by the team of fourteen authors. Grigorij Mesežnikov and Oľga Gyárfášová are the editors of the book. The team of authors included Soňa Szomolányi, Gergő Medve−Bálint, Jan Hartl, Peter Učeň, Ben Stanley, Vladimír Krivý, Grigorij Mesežnikov, Zora Bútorová, Oľga Gyárfášová, Václav Nekvapil, Jacek Kucharczyk, Agnieszka Łada, Martin Bútora and Zoltán Pogátsa.

The publication appears thanks to the generous support of the International Visegrad Fund and Heinrich Böll Stiftung.

In July 2010 the Institute for Public Affairs convened an international conference in Bratislava entitled Free Elections 20 Years After: Splendor and Misery of a Central European Dream. The conference brought together experts from the Visegrad Group countries and beyond for discussions of the 2010 election campaigns and their outcomes. Most of the contributions in this volume are revised and updated versions of papers presented at this conference.

On its 278 pages, it provides reflection on the political, economic and foreign policy implications of the 2010 elections from different angles and perspectives provided by experts from all Visegrad countries.

The diversity of professional backgrounds of the book’s authors has resulted in what the editors believe is a useful mix of contributions, ranging from political narratives and commentary to empirical and theoretical analyses. The publication will be accessible to a broad audience of policy makers, diplomats, journalists, academics, and civic activists.
