Matěj Navrátil is the author of a new policy paper on the Macron’s vision of the European Union and its comparison with the V4’s idea of the European future.
Macron has nonetheless not entirely written this option off, and his discourse indicates he is willing to go down this road if necessary. However, there is another tactic that Macron could pursue: the creation of new institutional bodies within the existing Treaty framework. Such changes could take form of new institutions/agencies to be created at supranational level, in order to boost enhanced cooperation in certain policy areas without requiring any Treaty modifications.
Despite having a different view on number of issues regarding the EU’s future, the migration crisis has united the bloc of four Central European countries as no other issue ever before. Their persistent refusal to accept mandatory quota for allocating migrants has demonstrated that the V4 currently represents a force to be reckon with.
