Czech Republic and Poland are together outside the Eurozone, however, being obliged to introduce the common currency in the future. Both countries support an active EU policy towards Eastern Europe and are interested in democratization of neighbouring and far away countries. But despite those similarities, there are profound differences. For instance, Poland signed the fiscal compact and Czech Republic rejected it.
Therefore one can ask whether both countries are on the same path or they have chosen different ways within the EU? Is their engagement in EU external relations similar or different? What are their strategies concerning EMU and EU foreign policy? Are these strategies or merely tactics? These and other questions will be discussed during the meeting which will be held on Monday, December 16 at the Institute of Public Affairs, Szpitalna street 5/22, Warsaw.
