Summary/Abstract: In the period since the last parliamentary elections in the Slovak Republic, in 2006, we can identify two main trends in Slovakia’s activities in the European Union (EU). First of all Slovakia is showing significant continuity in the fulfillment of integration priorities of the previous governmental coalition of Mikuláš Dzurinda. The governmental coalition of Prime Minister Robert Fico has focused on the successful finalization of Slovakia’s full-fledged membership to the EU mainly through accession to the Schengen area and the Eurozone. Secondly, the current government has not introduced any new Slovak strategic priorities in the EU except for the activities of the European Nuclear Forum which the SR initiated in cooperation with the Czech Republic in 2007.
