Summary/Abstract: The aim of this contribution is to offer an analytical perspective on the fulfillment of the main political, economic, and institutional priorities of the Slovak Republic, as a member state of the European Union, while simultaneously analyzing the conduct of Slovakia and the particular positions adopted by the country’s politicians on European integration. It offers a cross-section analysis of the core political priorities of Slovakia in the EU, while also evaluating the ability of the country to formulate and promote its objectives within the Union. In addition to focusing primarily on Slovakia’s performance within the EU in 2008, in the conclusion, the contribution also attempts to offer a broader assessment of the first five years of Slovakia’s membership in the European Union.
