Visegrad Revue

The end of August marks the 70th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising – seen as one of the most important events in the Czech and Slovak 20th century. Yet besides the well-established narrative of a heroic fight against fascism, we are again witnessing revisionist and openly manipulated interpretations of the event that aim to legitimize a fresh wave of nationalism. Thus the Uprising has once again served to the political agenda of the day.
Since 1989, rising unemployment rates in Slovakia have been a concerning phenomenon, reaching almost 30% in some parts of the country. The state has tried to fight the problem, by empowering individuals and strengthening their “flexibility”, but these policies have not really helped people earn a living. Instead, inhabitants of marginal regions are using a very different notion of flexibility to survive: informal social networks. Needless to say, these people do not need any special train...
While the war is still raging in the East and pundits are busy monitoring the next steps of Putin’s army, Ukrainians are already receiving all sorts of advice about how they should fix their country. The ‘economy’ is of course the magic word, and the top priority. Amidst the loud technical trade-speak, ‘soft’ issues like ‘education’ typically get drowned out. This happened in Slovakia - to its huge detriment.
