Prague Society for International Cooperation

The Prague Society for International Cooperation is a Prague-based non-governmental organization aimed at encouraging effective diplomacy between international entities. Its primary methods involve facilitating dialogue via hosting discussion-based events for actors within the field of international relations. Its growing network includes diplomats, academics, businesspeople, and politicians, among others. The organization seeks to create a neutral forum at which various leaders of related disciplines can communicate cohesively on issues facing Central Europe.

The Prague Society originates in communist Central Europe, when political dissidents joined forces to oppose their respective regimes. Though several of its members were imprisoned during the communist era, the Prague Society officially became a registered NGO under President Václav Havel in 1997. Today’s iteration of the organization has inherited much from its years of inception both in its mission and its methodology. In continually promoting a socratic exchange of ideas, the organization works to curtail threads of corruption and abuse within Central Europe.

The organization brings people together to share knowledge and experiences, and develop a new generation of responsible, well-informed leaders and thinkers in Central Europe. It aimes to promote a global approach to business, politics, and academia through transparent networking and off the record dialogue.

The Prague Society works in conjunction with the Global Panel Foundation with which it hosts one of the most remarkable events organised by the Prague Society: the Hanno R. Ellenbogen Citizenship Award, given annually since the year 2000, to honor dedication to and achievement in public service[1] particularly in Central Europe. Due to its unorthodox methods, the Society has attracted and retained many international ties around the world. In addition to its international endeavors, the Prague Society also publishes a newsletter that is distributed to the local population in the Czech Republic and other international publications.[2]
