Spooky Prague-based NGO

The Prague Society for International Cooperation is a Prague-based non-governmental organization that originated in communist Central Europe, when political dissidents joined forces to oppose their respective governments, often with foreign covert support. Though several of its members were imprisoned during the communist era, the Prague Society officially became a registered NGO under President Václav Havel in 1997.

The Society creates and maintains a network of businessmen, diplomats, politicians and academics, who contribute to important policy issues, such as "to promote a global approach to business, politics and academia"; and to "develop a new generation of responsible, well-informed leaders and thinkers in Central Europe".[1]

The Prague Society works in conjunction with the Global Panel Foundation with which it hosts the Hanno R. Ellenbogen Citizenship Award, given annually since the year 2000, to honour dedication to and achievement in public service[2] particularly in Central Europe. Due to its unorthodox methods, the Society has attracted and retained many international ties around the world.[3]
