JDI Youth Dialogue

Academics. Diplomats. Young Professionals. Students.

JDI Youth Dialogue is a unique project that brings together three different worlds. Diplomats, academics and students meet and share their opinions and ideas on a pertinent topic of international affairs. JDI Youth Dialogue takes place once a year in form of an international conference.


The main purpose of the project is to provide a platform for a comprehensive dialogue among students, young scholars, professionals and diplomats. Distinguished guests from relevant countries or fields of expertise are invited to take part in the Conference with regard to the current theme. A full day program is designed to attract scholars from various countries, Czech as well as international students and the diplomatic community in Prague in order to create an intensive and lively debate.


By attending the Conference participants gain relevant knowledge on raised issues, create a network and cooperate with involved professionals, diplomats and young scholars on future projects. In cooperation with the University of Economics in Prague and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic the outcomes of the JDI Youth Dialogue are publicized via Internet, existing networks and follow-up events.
