Central European Perspectives on the Future of Europe - Part II


The Czech Republic, the Visegrad Group and the European Union

The crises that have affected the European Union over the last ten years have put the European ambition to the test. After the migration crisis and Brexit, the European Union is now facing an unprecedented pandemic and the return of geopolitical tensions in its immediate neighbourhood. The need for concerted action, guided by a common vision, is necessary more than ever.

To respond to these challenges, Institut Montaigne and the Austrian-French Center for Rapprochement in Europe (ÖFZ/CFA) are organizing a series of webinars dedicated to the Visegrad Group. The aim of this series is to shed light on the perspectives of Central and Eastern Europe, and to examine more specifically how Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia see the role of the Visegrad Group in shaping tomorrow's Europe.
The second conference will be dedicated to the Czech Republic and will be held on January 28 at 4:00pm.

On this occasion, we will welcome:

  • Milena Hrdinková, State Secretary for European Affairs of the Czech Republic
  • Sonja Puntscher-Riekmann, Research Fellow at the Salzburg Centre of European Union Studies
  • Jacques Rupnik, Professor at the CERI-Sciences-Po

Discussions will be introduced by Hans Dietmar Schweisgut, Secretary General, Austro-French Centre for Rapprochement in Europe, Vienna, and moderated by Vladimír Bartovic, Director of the Europeum Institute for European Policy.
