TRANSPORTATION OF THE VISEGRAD FOUR: POTENTIAL INGREDIENTS FOR SYSTEM CHANGE Print E-mail

Donald E. Fuller                                       

Abstract
 
Yehezhel Dror argues that government, as now constituted, is a failure. Many would agree. His proposition for transformation resembles Havelian transcendence: largely a top-down concept. The paper examines his thesis and its appropriateness for the Visegrad Four, if not wider. Using secondary sources, and the Visegrad Four as the units of analysis, the purpose is to dissect governance capacities, incentives, and plausible transforming characteristics to evaluate Dror’s prescription for transforming governments from favoring raison d’etat to raison d’ humanite (humanity). The paper evaluates according to three possible outcomes: strong possibility, very little possibility, and partial possibility.
