The panel offers a thorough analysis of the internal dynamics of the Visegrád group in the context of the potential role of the semi-institutionalised cooperation between the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia in the EU.  The panel will consider how the V4 cooperation position itself in the wider Central-Eastern European region and to what extent it can act as the promoter of CEE interests in the EU. The panel will also consider the V4 group's recent gradual transformation from predominantly passive policy-takers towards a more active role in shaping the EU's strategic policy agenda.
