Today marks two decades since we embarked on the Prague Summer Schools journey. Behind this idea there was a strong belief in the benefits of bringing young people from different cultural and academic backgrounds together to discuss the current social, political and economic issues. There was also a strong belief in the contribution of knowledge and expertise of academics who guide students through this week long experience.

Over the past twenty years, we’ve witnessed numerous changes –the new topics were developing, the new teaching and management staff, the new settings and events. We experienced growth with over 150 students at times and faced challenges during the COVID era when our numbers were  modest. Throughout these fluctuations, our gratitude goes to the dedicated fans and contributors of Prague Summer Schools who supported us in various forms.

One aspect has remained unwavering throughout these years – the joy derived from forging new friendships and generating innovative ideas. I sincerely hope that students will have the opportunity to join our programs the upcoming summer, where they can reap the academic and networking benefits while experiencing the vibrant atmosphere of beautiful Prague. Cheers to two decades of shared knowledge, growth, and lasting connections!
