The mission of the Institute is to cultivate the Czech political and public sphere through professional and open discussion. We aim to create a living platform which defines problems, analyzes them, and offers recipes for their solution in the form of cooperation with experts, politicians, international conferences, seminars, public discussions, and political and social analysis available to the whole of Czech society. We believe that open discussion with experts and the recognition of the causes of problems is a necessary presumption for any successful solution to the political and social problems facing society today.

The primary focuses of the Institute are social change, foreign and security policy, defense, European issues, sustainable development, and adaptation to climate change. We also address education, digitization, urbanism, advances and changes in the energy industry, life in a city and in a public environment and, of course, matters of values in politics and human rights in both our country and abroad.
