Visegrad Insight no. 5

Maidan, Migrants, and Democracy
The launch of Visegrad Insight no. 5

coverThe fifth issue of Visegrad Insight, published at GLOBSEC, Bratislava, on 15 May 2014, presents a serious helping of focused analysis and opinion on three major topics: understanding the Ukrainian Maidan movement, debates on migration, and attitudes towards democracy in Europe.

Oksana Forostyna writes that the ongoing occupation of Crimea and other cities in Eastern Ukraine ensures that the people are kept on high alert, while Martin Ehl argues that migration in Central Europe is a far-reaching matter thus far only addressed poorly by politicians, but with long-term implications for each of the states and societies involved.

Is Europe really united in diversity? Both ethnic nationalism and religion remain major ideological driving forces shaping global politics, writes Ivan Krastev, one of most influential public intellectuals today. Political platforms that contradict democratic ideals ahead of the European elections attest to this opinion. Visegrad Insight brings together the most recent debates and research connected to this question.

In addition, the focal point on the Eastern Partnership identifies future challenges to the European Neighbourhood Policy. A must read for readers looking for insight into Central European affairs.
