International Symposium

The International Symposium "Czech Foreign Policy" is, as its name suggests, a conference focusing on different aspects of the Czech foreign policy from the point of view of different fields of research. It strives to bring together specialists, politicians, academicians, the public and the media to enable a broad exchange of ideas and experience. The intellectual interaction of academicians and politicians is one of the core benefits of the event, which has, throughout the years, gained the respect of both the research community and other groups of interest. The Symposium as such is an evolving event that is open to new ideas, welcoming bright minds from around the world, although its main focus is on the Czech foreign policy and its neighbourhood. On the following page we attempt to present to you the work which has been done so far and introduce the core ideas presented at the event.
