30 Years of the V4 As Seen by the Public

Supported by: International Visegrad Fund 

Project span: January 2021  –  October 2021

Project team: Oľga Gyárfášová,  Grigorij Mesežnikov, Zora Bútorová, Ján Bartoš 

Objective: The purpose of the project is to map the mutual perception of citizens of Visegrad countries by answering relevant questions, such as:  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? How do they see other European and extra-European nations? How do they perceive the problems inside V4 and in a broader neighborhood?

The project was coordinated by the Institute for Public Affairs in Bratislava. The data collection was coordinated by FOCUS s.r.o. agency and was carried out by FOCUS - Centrum pro sociální a marketingovou analýzu, spol. s.r.o. (Czech Republic), IMAS International Magyarország Kft. (Hungary), IMAS International Sp. z o.o. (Poland) and FOCUS - Centrum pre sociálnu a marketingovú analýzu, s.r.o.  (Slovakia).

The current project is a follow-up to similar public opinion polls conducted in all V4 countries in 2001, 2003, 2011 and 2015.
