ICE - Insight Central Europe


This week's Insight Central Europe focuses on last weekend's elections in Slovakia, where former prime minister Vladimir Meciar's failure to regain power means that the path is clear for the country to join the European Union and NATO. Meanwhile, the unreformed Communist Party have made it into the Slovak parliament for the first time since the fall of communism. In the Czech Republic, former prime minister Milos Zeman's wish to become president could be thwarted by the man he groomed as his successor, Vladimir Spilda. And in Austria, an interesting project called "Euro Menu" believes that the route to solidarity in Europe is via people's stomachs. All those stories and more are in Insight Central Europe.
