Masaryk Days: Restless World

11–12 March 2024

The fifth edition of the Masaryk Days will be dedicated to the theme "An Unquiet World". After honouring the memory of TGM on Komenského náměstí, Masaryk Days will focus on the phenomenon of anti-Semitism in history. We will also commemorate the legacy of Sir Roger Scruton by presenting the R. Scruton Award. The theme of a troubled world will also be discussed with leading Czech experts on the "hotbeds" of contemporary world conflicts. The Masaryk theme will be commemorated with a lecture, a book launch and a closing concert. Masaryk Days will be accompanied by a travelling exhibition Masaryk and the Holy Land.

About Masaryk Days

Masaryk Days began its tradition in March 2020, on the 170th anniversary of T. G. Masaryk's birth.

The purpose of the Days is to celebrate the legacy of the first Czechoslovak president and patron of our university through lectures, debates and high-quality cultural programmes, but also to reflect on current social issues.

“However, the policy of educated and conscious statesmen ... will not be a compromise between opposites and extremes, but in the main the implementation of a programme created by knowledge and understanding of the history and general situation of the state, the nation, Europe, the world. This means the constant demand of world politics. Not a golden middle way, but a clear goal and its purposeful permanent achievement.”
