The author addressed six questions (EUROPSYCHOL-INQUIRY) to a score of former core participants of Meetings of Psychologists of the Danubian Countries (1967-1993). The questions focused on the historical change in the dominance of psychological communities, the influence of North-American psychology on the others, the prototypical traits of members of the ethnics of Europe, opportunities of international cooperation (specifically among the smaller communities), the important research problems, correspondents' own initiatives. Answers came in from psychologists of Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia and Russia. The question in the heading of this article remains open. However, the respondents more or less agreed on an analysis of this issue, elucidated it from various positions and submitted noteworthy proposals for improving communication among various psychological regions in Europe in relation to North-American psychology. In conclusion, the standpoint of Pieter Drenth, President of the All European Academies of Sciences is reproduced in the paper.
