The research focuses on Euroscepticism in Central and Eastern European countries during the numerous crises that Europe has faced in recent times, the 2008 financial crisis, the 2015 migration crisis and especially the current pandemic crisis. The main research objective is to identify the type and manifestation of Euroscepticism prevailing during and after the COVID-19 crisis and to compare it with the trends of Central European Euroscepticism responses to previous crises. The comparative framework will include the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The analysis will focus on partisan Euroscepticism. The research will pay specific attention to explaining the relationship between Euroscepticism and tendencies towards illiberal democracy in contemporary Central European politics, both by analysing and comparing empirical findings and as a theory of the relationship between the concepts of Euroscepticism and illiberal democracy.
