Conference: “1st Visegrad conference”, June 3-4 (IWE CERS, Hungary)

The Visegrad economies form a unique group of European countries, with numerous common elements of history, politics, geography, economics, business, science, arts and culture. These common elements have been shaped, influenced and modified by many external and internal factors over the history, including cooperation between these countries at many levels and spanning many centuries. The latest form of their political cooperation, the Visegrad Group, which was established in Visegrad to promote progress and development in the region, turned 30 years’ old this year.

Due to these numerous common characteristics, in the various areas of analysis, the four countries act as “natural” comparative partners for each other. It is easier to understand developments and challenges faced by one country in the context of Visegrad comparison. It is easier to understand, what is going on in the Central and East European part of Europe, if all four countries are analysed.

The aim of the present conference is to further strengthen these comparative approaches, through concentrating on four areas.
