Prague European Summit
13 – 15 June 2017
The 3rd annual Prague European Summit was held in mid-June 2017 over three days and included over 20 events and 90 speakers. Organised by the EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy and the Institute of International Relations in Prague, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, the Prague European Summit offers a platform for high level discussion addressing and challenging current and future European policies and political directions. It focuses on the strategic vision of the European Union and aims to enhance the role Prague and the Central European states can play in shaping this vision. Taking into consideration the events of 2016, this year’s Summit was focused on pressing European issues, such as Brexit, propaganda, the rise of populism, and the security and stability of the European Union, as well as the European digital market and the EU economy, transatlantic relations, and relations with Russia and China. The Prague European Summit was held at the Lobkowicz Palace in the Prague Castle and the Czernin Palace, the seat of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It also included three ‘Breakfast Discussions in Embassies, three ‘Prague Talks’, and the prestigious ‘Vision for Europe’ Award.
