History

The Prague Society grew out of the dissident movement fighting communist regimes. Some of its members were imprisoned. The Prague Society finally became a registered NGO in 1997 during the Presidency of Václav Havel.

Its main aims are to promote international cooperation in Central Europe by showing leadership against corruption and abuse.

The Prague Society creates and maintains a network of businessmen, diplomats, politicians and academics, who contribute to important policy issues. lt organizes off-the-record discussions which allow decision-makers to influence and act upon one another’s thinking and endeavors to bring about a new generation of leaders and – most importantly – to give a voice to the unheard.
