The Visegrád Group: A Brief Introduction

The Visegrád Group, named after the Hungarian castle-town of Visegrád, traces its origins to a summit meeting of leaders from Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland held on February 15, 1991. Since the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993, the Visegrad Group now has four members (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland), and so it is sometimes referred to as the Visegrád Four (V4). In this one hour course, we will examine how the V4 countries (which lie at the eastern frontier of the EU and NATO with former Soviet states) work together to advance their military, cultural, economic and energy cooperation.
