For the 10th consecutive year, Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) together with NATO Public Diplomacy Division has joined their modest forces to organize Summer School of 2014 entitled - “NATO´S SECURITY CHALLENGES“. The Summer School was held between July 6 and 11 at the military recreation facility in Měřín, located on the right bank of Slapy dam about 60 km south of Prague.
