Every year, we organize dozens of different events across the Czech Republic, through which we regularly open the most interesting and pressing social issues. We combine leading policies with experts from around the world, representatives of the most successful companies and professional public. We give to discussions a new dimension and bring innovative solutions. So, we hope to see you soon, check out our events that we're preparing.

The Institute for Politics and Society invites you to debate China´s influence in the Czech Republic. Can the rise of Chinese activities be a threat to our country?

A frequent topic in recent months is the influence of foreign states and corporations in the Czech Republic. The subject of the discussions is also the scope of Chinese companies in our country, because since the beginning of the mandate of Miloš Zeman  the activities of these companies have increased. The growth in trade between the Czech Republic and China has so far not achieved its desired effect, and therefore many people are asking whether there is any meaning of deepening cooperations with Chinese companies.
