The Aspen Annual Conference is one of the Institute’s flagship events. The aim of the conference is to provide an overview of the political, economic and societal development of the Czech Republic in the context of Central Europe. The discussion is based on studies by Aspen Institute Central Europe expert groups, which in addition to analyzing the state of the Czech Republic in the monitored areas and highlighting the most serious problems in individual areas, also include specific recommendations for improvement. Experts from the business, academic and non-profit sectors are traditionally joined by members of the government on the conference panels. The Central European point of view is provided through special panels attended by Central European experts and politicians.
