Russia and Czech Elections 2017

Year of granting the aid: 2017
Realisation date: 01.06.2017 - 30.11.2017
Amount: 272 450 CZK
Organization: "Asociace pro mezinárodní otázky, z. s."

Czech political parties approach the future of the Czech-Russian relations (on purpose) with much indifference and withhold the issue in their programmes. General public, which is equivocal on the issue, becomes even more disoriented. There will be developed new Czech strategy on Russia in next months and President is about to sign new bilateral agreements during his November visit to Moscow. The future of CZ-RU relations will be, therefore, outlined through the results of autumn general elections and through decisions taken in next months. The project will influence this process, enhance transparency of political parties’ goals and, thus, ease their deliberation in next elections.

We will enter the debate on new Czech strategy on Russia and have impact on its final form. We will outline our vision of CZ – RU relations and develop three scenarios of the their future shape. We will present them to voters (via media and via dedicated website). We will approach 9 political parties’ representatives with the scenarios and ask them subscribe for one during video interviews. The voter will thus be able (through website gamification) to compare his and parties’ views.
