V 4 revue is a webzine reflecting the ideas, society and politics of the four Central European countries in the Visegrad group.
We regularly update six sections. In Looking back you can read about reflections of the V4′s past – anything from hairstyles in the 80s to preparations on the EU membership. In Inside Visegrad you can read about the current debates on society, politics and economy in Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary or Slovakia.Visegrad abroad provides a window into the activities of the V4 states and civil societies the adjacent neighborhood – chiefly the Western Balkans and Eastern Europe, but also now moving toward the Middle East and North Africa. Visegrad economy brings analysis and updates on macroeconomic, labour market and social policy changes in Visegrad countries. Leading experts from the region provide summaries of economic statistics and give in-depth policy analysis. Our aim is to stimulate discussion on how Visegrad countries can best adapt to fast-paced changes in the global economy and European integration processes. Stories about first-hand Visegrad experiences of the non-Visegradians can be found in the Visegrad for beginners. In this section we also publish announcements on fellowship and internship opportunities in the V4. Finally, Now in Visegrad offers stream of updates on festivals, conferences and other social gatherings across the region.
In V4 Revue, you can also find articles published in our partner publication – Visegrad Insight.
