Was interessiert mich am Gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalt
In his current project, Paolo Zucconi investigates why and how the V4 functions have evolved from EU integration and cooperation since 2004 to the current sub-regional partnership conflicting with the EU master-narrative and political framework. His research interest and activities also include the polarization of political culture in the V4, its effects on social cohesion, and the role of Russia in East-central Europe.
