On July 13, 2015, the government of the Czech Republic endorsed a new Concept of the Czech Republic’s Foreign Policy. The approved concept defines three global goals which are security, prosperity and sustainable development, and human dignity including human rights; and two national goals: service to its citizens and reputation of Czech Republic abroad.
The Concept of the Czech Republic’s Foreign Policy provides an underlying framework for the pursuit of the Czech Republic’s foreign-policy interests. This document is a follow-up to the previous foreign-policy concept from 2011 and is based both on the Czech Government’s policy statement from February 2014 and an in-depth audit of foreign policy carried out by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs during 2014. It also takes into account how the international environment has changed since 2011.
