Presentation of joint publication of four Visegrad think tanks in Brussels

Presentation of a publication Diverging Voices, Converging Policies: The Visegrad States’ Reactions to the Russia-Ukraine Conflict, whose part was a discussion about themes related to development in the V4 countries, was held on 11 October 2016 in Brussels. The event was organised by the Heinrich Böll Foundation which supported publishing the book.

The book was introduced by its co-editors Jacek Kucharczyk and Grigorij Mesežnikov in a panel discussion, which was led by Paul Ivan from the European Policy Centre. They highlighted factors which influence policies of the V4 countries and attitudes of individual politicians in Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia towards the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and current development in Ukraine. They were also discussing current trends in the Visegrad group, attitudes of the V4 countries not only to issues related to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict but also to migration, regional cooperation and to relations with the European Union.
