Masaryk Diplomatic Program - Final Papers

At the end of May 2022, ten students completed the Masaryk Diplomatic Program (MDP), a two-month-long educational program of the Embassy of the Czech Republic designed for university students interested in diplomacy, international relations, and US relations with the Czech Republic.

The MDP Program offered invaluable insight into Czech-American relations. Students had a chance to meet and discuss with Czech diplomats and learn from them and each other during a series of virtual workshops.
