ABOUT

Each year, public policy students from Europe’s top institutions gather in a European city for the European Public Policy Conference (EPPC). This unique conference brings together future policy-makers, political leaders, regional experts, and scholars to address contemporary challenges facing Europe in the modern age. The ninth annual conference will be held in Prague from April 21 to April 23, 2017. Previous conferences have been hosted in Athens, Istanbul, Budapest, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Warsaw, and Ljubjana. This year's conference is organized in conjunction with the Hertie School of Governance, the Faculty of Social Sciences at Charles University, and the International Policy and Leadership Institute.
