Empowering Policy Positions of the Visegrad Group in the EU







This project has been created with support of the International Visegrad Fund, an international donor organization, established in 2000 by the governments of the Visegrad Group countries—Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia to promote regional cooperation in the Visegrad region (V4) as well as between the V4 region and other countries, especially in the Western Balkan and Eastern Partnership regions.


The project brings together think-tanks from all V4 countries and experts on migration policy & internal security to produce joint policy papers elaborating and clearly explaining details of the V4 positions and constructive proposals for the EU.

The project has three phases:
(1) FORMULATION of the V4 positions by partner think-tanks,
(2) DEBATE of the positions in V4 capitals,
(3) PRESENTATION to EU expert community in Brussels.
Thus, the gap in the communication of V4 positions towards V4 societies and West European NGOs, think-tanks and media will be mitigated. This project increases the level of public debate in V4 countries about migration and internal security policies and alleviates the lack of efforts that have been made so far to explain clearly and comprehensibly their views.
