Read more on the Visegrad Insight webpage.

In an attempt to portrait middle class in Central Europe, renowned academics, writers and intellectuals from the region and beyond discuss its roots and possible scenarios for the future. Street protesters and bank executives, literary awards recipients and aspiring political representatives of the contemporary middle classes are all in focus.

In this issue:

  • Péter Nádas questions the links of middle class and democracy.
  • USA based intelligence unit Stratfor reports on geopolitical outcomes of bank acquisition in the region.
  • Rudolf Chmel examines the conditions of solidarity in times of crisis.
  • Timothy Garton Ash discusses the horizons of European imagination.
  • Plus extensive coverage on the relations between the USA and China, an overview of the Central European book awards and much more.
