PSSI organizing a presidential debate on foreign policy with the leading Czech candidates

30.10.2012

The Prague Security Studies Institute, in cooperation with Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University, is pleased to announce the organization of a presidential debate on foreign policy with the leading Czech candidates.

In January, Czechs will take to the polls to vote for their next president, a historic event as it will mark the Czech Republic's first ever direct presidential election. To be recognized as a candidate for president, each contender must collect 50,000 signatures and submit a sampling to be authenticated by November 6th.  PSSI takes great pride in hosting the first debate of the campaign season with officially recognized candidates for president, just days after the November 23rd authentication announcement. 

The debate, to be held at 18:30 on 28 November at Charles University’s Blue Auditorium (Celetna 20, Prague 1), will concentrate solely on Czech foreign policy, including topics such as transatlantic relations, Central Europe’s energy security and Visegrad Four cooperation, Russia, Iran, Afghanistan, Israel and Czech competitiveness abroad.

Confirmed candidates include Jana Bobošíková, Jiří Dienstbier, Jan Fischer, Karel Schwarzenberg, Přemysl Sobotka and Miloš Zeman (in alphabetical order).

The working language of the debate is Czech.

Due to limited capacity at the auditorium, registration for this event will be limited to the first 200 RSVP emails received by November 21.  To register, please write to debate@pssi.cz
