Debate on Visegrad and European identity

On 30 April, 2014 Grigorij Mesežnikov participated in the roundtable discussion titled Europe or Visegrad – Complementary or Parallel Liberal Identities, held in Budapest. 

The event was a part of the ELF (European Liberal Forum) – Ralf Dahrendorf Roundtable series, organized in cooperation with Republikon Institute (Hungary). The discussed questions included: Does a Visegrad identity exist? Is it parallel with the European identity or rather complement it? How can Visegrad identity and cooperation contribute to the development and strengthening of the EU? Does supporting this idea depend on party-politics in different countries? 

Speakers included Gordon Bajnai, former prime minister of Hungary and main candidate of EGYÜTT-PM in EP elections, Felicita Medved, president of the European Liberal Forum, Leszek Jazdzewski, editor in chief, Liberté! (Poland) and Grigorij Mesežnikov. Discussion was moderated by Csaba Tóth, Director of strategy, Republikon Institute
