Neither Security nor Development? Czech and Hungarian Identities and Interests in the Provincial Reconstruction Teams in Afghanistan
This article by Ondřej Horký-Hlucháň and Balázs Szent-Iványi, which was published by the journal East European Politics, builds on the securitisation and post-development literature and scrutinises the legitimising discourses of the Czech Republic and Hungary's respective Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs) in the Logar and Baghlan provinces of Afghanistan from 2007 to 2013.

Why should the Visegrad Group support the Iranian Nuclear Deal?
This policy paper by Erzsébet N. Rózsa, a former visiting Visegrad scholar at our institute, covers the historic deal of the P5+1 and Germany with Iran concerning its nuclear programme. The paper argues that the Iranian nuclear program and the international controversy over it are derivatives of both the experimental model of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its behaviour, in which it acts as an empire.

Past Events

7th International Symposium "Czech Foreign Policy"
The Institute of International Relations in cooperation with its partners held the already seventh International Symposium "Czech Foreign Policy". This year it focused on the challenges small democratic countries face in the changing global order. It also continued in the tradition of linking different spheres – such as political, academic, public and media spheres – together to start a fruitful discussion. We now present to you videos and photos from the event so that you can better recall or become acquainted with the summary and key objectives of this year’s symposium.

The rise of men and masculinities: Progress for gender and development?
In the last two decades, there has been increasing interest in a ‘men and masculinities’ approach to gender and development issues. This presentation by Polly Wilding, a Lecturer in Gender and International Development and the Director of the Centre of Global Development at the University of Leeds, discussed some of the arguments that underlie the masculinities approach and, in relation to the issue of male violence, asked what men are being asked to give up, and what is being offered in the way of alternatives.
