PRAGUE MODEL CONGRESS

27-30 APRIL
2018


The First Year of International U.S. Congress Simulation in Prague

Understanding America Now Is More Important Than Ever

The American Dream is broken. Anemic economic growth, social inequalities, indebtedness and insecure future have stricken far too many people. Will Trump's administration make America great again or speed its demise?

The world is darker. With populism rising, EU breaking down, Russia and China aggressively expanding and ISIS proliferating outside the Middle East, are we nearing the end of 'Pax America'?
