The goal of the Prague European Summit is to find common answers to the key questions in the economic, social, foreign-political and institutional areas of the European Union. The organisers aim to recast the image of the Czech Republic as an EU member country which self-confidently yet constructively joins the strategic discussions on the course of the European Union.
On 12-14 July top European officials, members of academia, representatives of think-tanks, as well as delegates from the corporate sphere and media will gather in Prague’s Czernin palace to debate issues concerning the European integration and strategic autonomy.
7th edition of the Prague European Summit is divided into two policy tracks, focusing on political, as well as economic topics. The political track will debate issues concerning the EU's external relations, such as democratization in the world, transatlantic affairs, international trade or EU’s Neighbourhood Policy. The economic track will focus on the issues concerning Post-pandemic recovery from the European Green Deal, digitalization to economic and gender (in)equality.
Aside from the public panel discussions and closed expert roundtables, the summit will also welcome 30 young policy leaders in its Future European Leaders Forum in the span of 12-16 July. A format which is implemented in cooperation with the Conference on the Future of Europe. The wider public will have an excellent chance to follow the summit via its online platform, while all of the speakers, journalists, young leaders and summit’s partners will physically meet at the seat of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Since its inception in 2015, it is Prague European Summit’s goal to advance strategic discussion about pan-European topics from the CEE perspective. Each year at the Summit, the Czech foreign minister furthermore bestows “Vision for Europe” award to a person that has significantly contributed to the European integration, and this year will be no different. Last year’s recipients of the award were Federica Mogherini and Margot Wallstrom.
