The Association for International Affairs (AMO), in cooperation with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, and the US Embassy in the Czech Republic, is hosting a conference with Czech, German, and American politicians and experts on this topic.

Exactly 100 years ago, the United States supported the efforts of Central and Eastern European nations to gain their independence. After 1989, the US also advocated for the rapid integration of the former communist states into the structures of NATO and the European Union. Nevertheless, relations between the United States and the European Union are currently in a strained phase. That is why it is time for an honest evaluation. The main question to address is what can be done to cultivate and strenghten transatlantic relations.

Among the speakers are Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Jan Hamáček, former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee Petr Pavel, Chairman of the European Affairs Committee in the Czech House of Representatives Ondřej Benešík, and Ian Brzezinski, Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council. German Ambassador Christoph Israng and US Ambassador Stephen King will open the event.

Please register here until 10th September, 2018.
