Presidential candidates‘ debate on foreign policy

In the upcoming January, Czech citizens will elect a new president, who will – for the first time in the history of the Czech Republic – come of direct election. How do the candidates perceive current development of European integration? Do they consider defence of the western values like democracy and human rights opposing to economic interests of the Czech Republic? How should the president act if he/she does not agree with government’s foreign policy?

These and more questions will be discussed by five official presidential candidates. They will also face questions of the Czech experts in the field of international politics including those, who are abroad and will connect via video transmission.

Media partners of the event are EurActiv.cz and iHned.cz.

Speakers include:

  • JIRI DIENTSBIER

  • JAN FISCHER

  • PREMYSL SOBOTKA

  • MILOS ZEMAN

  • KAREL SCHWARZENBERG (tbc)
