The event was part of the activities organized under the FP7 'bEUcitizen' research consortium  in which Uwe Puetter and Robert Csehi carry out research on the constraints financial market developments may have imposed on the practice of political citizenship. In his talk Ivan Mikloš' commented Slovakian parliamentary politics in connection to major crisis decision-making such as the first Greek bailout, which he had vehemently opposed and the creation of the euro area financial rescue mechanisms, the EFSF and the ESM, which he then supported against political resistance within the governing coalition.
