On Thursday, April 19, 2012 a conference “Culture and Diplomacy” takes place at the seat of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic – the Czernin Palace.

 
 
Apart from representatives of the Czech Republic, several speakers from abroad will participate in the Conference, including representatives of Great Britain – Ali Fisher, Germany – Berthold Franke, Austria - Peter Fantasy and Denmark – holding the EU Presidency - Flemming Johannesen, and also Ana Paula Laborinho, president of EUNIC Global Network and Gottfried Wagner on behalf of a civic initiative “More Europe.”

The Conference is dedicated to the relationship between culture and diplomacy and shall examine the potential of culture to influence development of relations between Europe and the rest of the world. The support of a greater understanding for the European way of life, drawing attention to its foundational values of democracy, rule of law, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms is what first comes to mind. Taking one step further, the conference shall also elaborate upon how to apply this potential of culture in the most effective way. Attention will also be given to the European Union framework as a tool for increasing the capacity of individual European countries to gain attention of audiences of countries like China or India and to effectively communicate with them.

The Conference is organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and EUNIC cluster in the Czech Republic in cooperation with Czech Centers and Institute of International Relations Prague.

The conference will be available live and as an archived video at www.mzv.cz/EUNIC and www.czech.cz.
