About the book


This collected volume presents research focusing on the interaction of domestic, foreign, and transnational actors in the process of the construction of national interests. The contributors concentrate on the extent to which the role of non-state actors has strengthened the formulating of national interests of the Slovak Republic in the post-integration period. The authors elaborated on the working hypotheses that basic foreign policy preferences of the Slovak Republic are, to a certain extent, defined by political elites and that the actors of the civic society remain predominantly passive on this issue.

The contributions present facts, conclusions, views, opinions, and thoughts about the way the entry of the Slovak Republic into the EU and NATO affects the content character of the discussion, the procedural aspects, and the structure of participants in conceiving national interests of Slovakia.”—Radoslav Ivančík
