The CEPA Salon was held in cooperation with the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Washington, DC on Thursday, June 28. The discussion featured an introduction and welcome from host H.E. Ivan Korčok, Ambassador of the Slovak Republic, and insights from American Enterprise Institute Research Fellow Dalibor Roháč and CEPA's Director of Research Donald N. Jensen on the outcome of the European Union parliamentary elections and the message from Central Europe. The conversation was moderated by CEPA Executive Vice President Réka Szemerkényi.

The recent EU parliamentary elections may mark a new beginning for policy discussions as increasingly diverse political views on immigration, integration, economic development, and defense spending will be represented in Brussels. Over the next several months, the parliament will work to form political coalitions, elect a commission president, and set the priorities for the upcoming year. These developments will hold significant implications for Central Europe. At the CEPA Salon, Dalibor Roháč provided his perspective on how the EU elections will affect the region. CEPA's Donald Jensen discussed the implications for the broader Alliance and how political parties have the opportunity to impact policy.

Each month, the CEPA Salon visits a different European Embassy. These salon-styled discussions offer an opportunity to learn about Europe’s perspectives and challenges through the lens of U.S. legislative and foreign policy priorities. During this informal evening session, participants exchange views and network with leading experts and diplomats.
