Its goal is to create a region where these countries can easily work together in the fields of common interests, above all the main objective of EU membership. Since 2004, all the four Visegrad countries have gained a full membership status of European Union and the question remains what political function, role and influence the Visegrad Group has in the larger context of European Integration after achieving this goal.The purpose of this study is to examine what political function, role and influence the Visegrad Group has in the larger context of European Integration. As a subregional cooperation, the V4 will be analyzed by studying its political function in two sectors, defence and environment, from a regionalist perspective.
