Our research associate Zuzana Kasáková and our senior researcher Vít Havelka prepared background material for the Round Table of the National Convention on the EU on the topic Evaluation of the Czech Presidency. Three main questions are put to the Round Table: How successful has the Czech Reublic been in implementing its Presidency priorities? How successful was the Czech Republik in carrying out its presidency in terms of organisation? Has the Czech Republic been successful in promoting its membership in the European Union?
"The Czech Republic has been preparing for its Presidency of the Council of the Eu since mid-2018. This involved not only the preparation of programme priorities, but also ensuring sufficient human resource capacity and the organisational and logistical management of the Presidency. An important aspect of this role is also adequate communication of the state administration and political elites not only to their EU partners but also to the Czech public."
