Thirty years of independent Slovakia. Six views on the formation of the state

The latest book publication of the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) focuses on the process of transition to democracy in the context of the formation and functioning of Slovak statehood – on the results of the transformation process in the economic field, the creation of democratic institutions, the metamorphosis of the character of the state and its relationship with minorities, the role of presidents as important socio-political actors. It offers an analysis of public opinions on the functioning of democracy and the direction of Slovakia, as well as a reflection on the development of the state's foreign policy. 

The authors of the publication are Miroslav Beblavý, Martin Bútora, Zora Bútorová, Oľga Gyárfášová, Jarmila Lajčáková, Grigorij Mesežnikov (editor), Ivan Mikloš and Emília Sičáková Beblavá.
