This contribution examines rising economic patriotism in Central and Eastern Europe, mainly in Hungary and Poland, after the global financial and economic crisis. A closer look at patriotism in these EU Member States seems warranted given the global shift towards more inward-looking national policies and the challenging of neo-liberal ideas of free trade and competition, where these ideas were taken on board by local elites rather keenly. Our overview and analysis do not claim to be exhaustive; we touch upon selected issues to give a fuller picture of the state of the European Union and its Single Market sixty years after the Treaty of Rome was signed, 28 years after the onset of post-communist transition, and more than thirteen years since Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries joined the EU. Space does not permit a complete comparative overview of economic policy developments in the entire CEE region. We focus instead on the two problem countries, which in the past years have been on a collision course with the EU institutions and other Member States.
