The International Symposium of the 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. This year’s topic is “Strategy in Foreign Policy”.
