Summary/Abstract: In the debate on the future of the European Union, Slovakia favours more integration. The sharpening discussion about a multi-speed Europe could undermine political cooperation within the Visegrad Group. Slovakia uses the V4 to strengthen its position on selected issues but, at the same time, signals shortcomings associated with group membership. The response to the possibility that political cooperation will be undermined requires joint action on the future of the EU based on the V4 March statement.
