„We consider freedom to be the first prerequisite for federalization, and believe that the free nations of central and eastern Europe may easily federate should they find it necessary.“

Declaration of Independence of the Czechoslovak Nation

In 2018, the entire world commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, a conflict, the results of which, among other things, included the creation of East-Central Europe as a region of nation-states. With the fall of the multinational empires in the region, the inhabitants of the former "prisons of nations" soon were confronted with the challenges of building up and defending their independent states.

East-Central Europe, predestined by its location, has always been in the centre of everything that happened on the continent. An entire century has passed since the year 1918, the tumultuous course of which formed our region up until its current state. Wars, regime changes, or pressing national issues aren’t the only basis for the development of East-Central European states. Growth and successful progress achieved also significantly helped shape the aforementioned states during the past decades.

As we’re commemorating such an important historical milestone, which the end of the First World War certainly is, the illusion of success is diminishing due to the challenges posed by the rise of nationalism, the calls to stop deepening integration, or by populism with a substantial flavour of conservatism.

If we regarded our region as stable and deeply entrenched in the values of liberal democracy 10 years ago, we are witnessing the exact opposite nowadays. East-Central Europe is fighting for its identity.

Which way will our region head in the future? What roles will nation-states play in this process? Does liberal democracy in East-Central Europe have a future?
