Experts on European Politics from V4 Countries Met at a Workshop in Prague

In March, AMO organized a three-day workshop in Prague for thirty women from neighboring V4 countries who are involved in European politics.

On Wednesday, we kicked off the program with a meeting with the Slovak ambassador Ingrid Brocková, followed by a practical workshop on presentation skills. The second day was marked by meetings with prominent women in Czech foreign policy. We started with a discussion with the new Deputy Minister for European Affairs Pavlína Žáková, who, along with the Director of the Department of Communication on European Affairs at the Office of the Government Eva Húsková, introduced the Czech priorities in European policy and how to best communicate them to the Czech public. We then discussed plans for the future education of Czech diplomats with the Director of the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dana Kovaříková, and we got also to the topics of supporting young women in diplomacy. After a packed program, we took a guided walk around Prague following the footsteps of notable Czech feminists.

On Friday, we visited the supporter and partner of our Women’s Network, the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the Czech Republic, Daan Huisinga. At his residence, we had the opportunity to discuss feminist foreign policy, the practical aspects of a diplomat’s work, and work-life balance with the Deputy Ambassador of the Netherlands to Germany, Mira Woldberg.

We thank the Embassy of Slovakia and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the Czech Republic for their support, but we would like to especially thank to the International Visegrad Fund.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of the Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.

AMO cooperates on this project with organizations from other V4 countries: Casimir Pulaski Foundation (Poland), Centre for Euro-Atlantic Integration and Democracy (CEID, Hungary) and the Research Centre of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association (SFPA, Slovakia).
