Students of the Diplomatic Academy completed an intensive theoretical training


Students of the Diplomatic Academy of the MFA CZ who commenced their diplomatic training in October 2016 successfully completed its intensive theoretical part. Following the theoretical training the eight junior diplomats began working at specific departments of the MFA.

During the past three months the students gained detailed knowledge about Czech foreign policy and learned more about activities of the respective departments of the MFA. They also had a chance to debate about Czech diplomacy with experienced diplomats from the MFA as well as other institutions. They met i.e. Hynek Kmoníček, Director of the Foreign Affairs Department at the Office of the President of the Czech Republic, Petr Kratochvíl, Director of the Institute of International Relations and professor Ivo Šlosarčík from the Charles University.

The intensive theoretical training also encompassed administrative aspects of the foreign service. The students completed the administrative part of the training by successfully passing of the state civil service exam.

In order to finish their general diplomatic training, the students have yet to attend a series of lectures, write a final policy paper and complete a short-term secondment to a Czech Embassy.
