Main objective of the project is to extend the debate on two marginal topics that do not find a vast representation in Slovakia, yet the importance of their comprehension is growing every year. Project will build upon expertise, gained through cooperation with HBS, and elevate the organized activities and debates on authoritarian regimes further, including emerging elements in different countries within the immediate European neighborhood. 

Goal of the project is to contribute to the debate on how rule of law could and should be enforced in the EU, how the rule of law relates to other endemic problems in Central and Eastern Europe, such as corruption, and how it is perceived by the society in the long-term discourse. Project activites will follow up on those carried out in 2020 within the Rule of Law project, supported by HBS. Three topics will be focused on in this project: rule of law in the EU, European Public Prosecutor's Office, and fighting the gender-based violence. 

Building upon two successful projects, supported by NATO PD, the goal of this project is to increase policy stakeholders' awareness of issues related to European security cooperation and its advancement within common goals of NATO's Grand Strategy, support a fact-based and quality discussion on European responsibilities in the security and defense area, specifically in Slovakia, and analyse and discuss the road towards a new Transatlanticism and challenges as well as opportunities for rebuilding the transatlantic relationship.

General objective of the project is to sustain and increase the public interest in the European issues and to increase the active participation in the policy debates. Project will provide fact-based information on values, the main priorities, and policy topics of the EU, highlighting the role of the European Parliament as the only directly eleced institution, representing views and interests of the European citizens.

The project intends to follow up (through intense, yet analytical media content) with the preparation of the European and Slovak legislation, however concentrating on Transatlantic dimensions of them. This unexplored vicinity seeks to add up to the discussion on the European Digital Sovereignty in Slovakia. Furthermore, it aims to create a space for fruitful exchange of ideas amongst the most relevant actors.
