25 Years of the V4 as Seen by the Public - new IVO publication
The Visegrad Group is based mainly on a political cooperation. But what do the citizens of particular countries think about it? Do they actually know what the Visegrad Four is? What they believe to be their common interests? How do they perceive each other? To what extent they trust each other? What is the intensity of their mutual interactions? The answers to these questions can be found in the research project Perception of the Visegrad cooperation in V4 countries, conducted on the initiative of and with financial support from the International Visegrad Fund. The project was coordinated by the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) in Bratislava. The data from a representative sample of adult population of the four countries were gathered in each of the V4 countries.
Research results with broader political and historical context are included in publication 25 Years of the V4 as Seen by the Public in both language mutations.
On May, 23rd 2016, Insitute for Public Affairs introduced the research results on a press conference in Bratislava with participation of IVO analysts Oľga Gyárfášová and Grigorij Mesežnikov, the results were commented by Tomáš Strážay (Slovak Foreign Policy Association), and with Pavol Demeš (GMF US) as a Chair of the event.
