What are the liberal roots of the Visegrad project? Does the Group still have a political relevance in the European Union? What is the region’s relation to illiberalism? How can we fight against illiberal tendencies? In our conference we wish to answer these questions and identify what liberalism means to the Visegrad Group and vice versa. We also wish to discuss the group’s relation to illiberalism, if the V4 accelerates the illiberal tendencies or if the V4 countries should not deemed as the same case from this aspect at all. Our aim is to show a liberal, open and progressive Central European alternative to the illiberal tendencies, promote liberal values in the V4 countries and show that Visegrad Project has pro-European value as well. We wish to invite international experts from Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to discuss how we could create a more liberal Visegrad Group in a post-illiberal era.
