PSSI convened its second RMSSP session with diplomat Tomáš Szunyog


On Tuesday evening, Robinson-Martin Security Scholars students gathered to discuss the security policy and foreign strategy of the Czech Republic with a long-time diplomat Tomáš Szunyog, who currently serves as Director of Security Policy Department at the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Previously, among other posts, Mr. Szunyog was Czech Ambassador to Slovenia and Bosnia and Hercegovina.

There was a spirited debate concerning the development of the Czech Republic's security policy since early 90s and a range of options when addressing current challenges. He noted that the environment influencing the country's security is presently going through dynamic changes. Threats, the sources of threats and those carrying them out are of both a national and, increasingly, a non-governmental nature. They are becoming intertwined and the differences between them blurred. Consequently, the growing interconnectedness of these trends and drivers is reducing its predictability.

Active membership in the NATO system of collective defence that is based on a strong transatlantic link is therefore vital to the defence of the Czech Republic. Simultaneously, as an EU member state, the Czech Republic participates actively in the development of tools defined by the Treaty of Lisbon, which means involvement in the EU's Common Foreign Security Policy. In addition to engagement with international organisations, the Czech Republic promotes its security interests through bilateral relations, in particular with neighbouring states and through regional cooperation, including the Visegrad group.
