AMO organizes public debate about Czech European policy connected with presentation of Czech results of Trends of Visegrad European Policy research.

What do the people who form and influence Czech European politics think about the role of the Czech Republic in the European Union? Should the Czech Republic adopt the Euro and whom do they consider to be the Czech Republic’s closest ally in the EU? How do they perceive the position of the Visegrad Group in the EU and what topics should the Czech Republic focus on in the EU? These and other issues were addressed in a research carried out by AMO in the summer of 2017. The key actors of Czech European politics (e.g. politicians, officials, journalists, and researchers) answered questions on the economic and institutional aspects of integration, partners in European politics, and the Visegrad Group. The results that will be presented during the debate bring a unique insight into how the makers of the Czech European policy think about the EU.

The subsequent debate shall focus on the question of how the European policy shall develop after the parliamentary election. Is it possible to interpret the election result as strengthening of the political stream which calls for a change of Czech European policy? Has the prospect of adopting the Euro been put on halt for the next term? How will the Czech Republic face and how should it face the reflections on the reform of the EU or the strengthening of the eurozone?
