On the current political situation in the Czech Republic and Slovakia

On April 26, 2018, the Prague Business Club organized as a part of their project Pátečníci (www.patecnici.cz) a debate about the current socio-political situation in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, about the state of democracy and media in both countries.

The discussion, held at the Aureole restaurant in Prague, was attended by Michael Žantovský, diplomat, writer and executive director of the Václav Havel Library, and IVO president Grigorij Mesežnikov. Edita Adlerová introduced the event. The discussion was moderated by Luboš Drobík, president of the Prague Business Club.

Participants of the discussion, including the representatives of the Czech public, have addressed the topics included the rise of populist politics in Europe, the malign impact of corruption on the development of society, the demanding challenges facing the European integration project today. Michael Žantovský and Grigorij Meseznikov stressed the need to maintain strong positions of the Czech Republic and Slovakia as partners and allies in the Euro-Atlantic area, which provides political and security guarantees to both states.
