Those Pronounced Dead Live Longer
The Visegrád Group after EU Accession

Jan Růžička, Michal Kořan

Deutsche Fassung


The Visegrád project is still alive. It has often been written off in the past 15 years, and after the EU accession of the four states, it was declared dead. Cooperation may hardly be institutionalised, but ministries and agencies are trying to cooperate in many policy fields. Within the EU, the four states are working with one another to integrate the Balkan states and Ukraine. Since 2000, the group has had its own small budget in the form of the International Visegrád Fund.
