Three decades passed since the democratic transformation of East-Central European countries and the establishment of the Visegrad cooperation. The emerging roles of regional partnerships, the strengthening of the V4 Group in the European Union and particularly the strong economic growth results and prospects of its four member states all contribute to a growing interest in this regional format. It is therefore appropriate to analyse the political and socio-economic processes in the region from the distinct Central European perspective.

The occasion of this event is to discuss the first edition of the book Central Europe and the V4: Historical and Policy Perspectives published by AJKC in 2018. The publishing of the book was supported by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary and the International Visegrad Fund.
