Czech EU presidency

Assessment of the Czech Presidency in the field of culture, audiovisual and intellectual property

On 1 July 2022, the Czech Republic took over the presidency of the Council of the European Union under the symbolic motto ”Europe as a task”, in tribute to the title of a speech made by Václav Havel in 1996, at the awards ceremony of the International Charlemagne Prize in Aachen. The Czech government chose this not only to foster “reflection on Europe and a re-evaluation of many of our current approaches and premises”, but also as an interpretation of Havel’s words as a call to take more responsibility for global ecological, social and economic challenges.
