In this week's Insight Central Europe, Poles head to the ballot box for the country's EU referendum, as the final leg of the Czech referendum campaign gets underway. We ask why the Slovak government has decided to introduce doctor's fees and increase the cost of prescriptions. Meanwhile in neighbouring Austria, strikes are held across the country in protest at the government's plans to reform the pension system. And as we hear in this week's programme, the thorny problem of pension reform is a region-wide issue.
