Our Czech colleagues from the Institute of Contemporary History are exploring the roots of their current Chamber of Deputies’ history back in 1968. During the Prague Spring, the Czech National Council was established to negotiate with the Slovak counterpart about the country’s federal restructuring. The federalization turned out to be the only reform that survived the Warsaw Pact invasion. The conference will welcome some of the veterans from 1968 and discuss the Czech National Council’s late-socialist history as well as its democratic transformations after 1989.
When: 17-18 May, 2018
Where: Prague, The Chamber of Deputies
