Project: Connecting V4 and Other Regional Expert Networks

Project Implemented with the Association for International Affairs

1 May 2021

A joint project on inter-regional connections implemented by V4 organisations.

Although the Visegrad Group is perceived as a strong regional player, it has not been very successful in building broader coalitions, even regarding topics it considers to be a priority. This position may result from insufficient communication with other multilateral regional platforms within the EU.

It is in the V4 interest to be actively involved in cooperation with other regional groupings and create V4+ coalitions and thus positively contribute to the future of the EU.

The project intends to build inter-regional connections across the EU through connecting V4 and other regional expert networks and thus research concrete potential for the future EU coalitions.

Planned project activities include:

  • Four working sessions of V4 experts, in cooperation with experts from other regions and local stakeholders. The workshop outputs will be summarized in policy briefs, written and published by project partners.
  • An international expert conference in Prague followed up by a summarizing policy paper.
  • An expert international roundtable presentation of the project deliverables.
