In mid-September, the findings of the recent – yet the tenth – public opinion research on Transatlantic Trends have been released. The initiator, author, and the chief sponsor of the project, which studies the opinions of the American and the European publics on the wide range of foreign-political issues, is German Marshall Fund of the United States (further on ‘GMF US’).
In Slovakia, the results were officially released on September 20, 2011. The main conclusions were presented by Pavol Demeš, Senior Transatlantic Fellow GMF US, and Oľga Gyárfášová, Program Director of IVO, and commented on by Theodore Sedgwick, U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia, and Vladimír Bartovic, director of the Department of Analyses and Strategies, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic. The event was participated by the number of diplomats, public officials, experts, and students.
Slovakia takes part in the international project since 2004. From the very beginning, IVO is the partner of GMF US in analyzing and presenting the interesting results.
