On November 3rd, 2014, Institute for Public Affairs' (IVO) president Grigorij Mesežnikov took part in the discussion Ten years in the EU: Visegrad perspectives and beyond. The debate was organized by association EuroPolicy, in cooperation with Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung and Representation of the European Commission in Slovakia.
Besides IVO president, the participants of the discussion were Vladimír Bartovic (EUROPEUM, Praha), Maria Majkowska (Institute of Public Affairs, Warszaw) and Dušan Chrenek (Head of the Representation of the European Commission in Slovakia). The moderator of the discussion was political expert Radovan Geist.
The main idea of the debate was that after the EU accession, the Visegrad states have since tried to redefine priorities and find an orientation point for future cooperation.
At the end of the event, Grigorij Mesežnikov introduced the new IVO book Desať rokov v Únii: Slovenská a česká cesta, which is the product of Czech and Slovak authors.
