Call for Participants: 26th International Youth Leadership Conference

                Connecting Future Leaders

The International Youth Leadership Conference Prague (IYLC Prague) is a week-long forum on international relations, law and politics held bi-annually in Prague, Czech Republic. By bringing together 100 outstanding students from over 30 countries the IYLC provides an excellent opportunity for future leaders to exchange ideas and views on contemporary global issues while building a strong network of likeminded peers from all over the world.

The conference is designed to encourage social interaction and networking by means of the following interrelated activities:
  •      United Nations Security Council Emergency Meeting Simulation
  •      International Criminal Court Mock Pre-Trial
  •      Model European Parliament Simulation 
  •      Meetings with leading policy experts, business men and Ambassadors
  •      Group Debates and Panel Discussions
  •      Networking events such as VIP Reception and Gala Dinner


I now have a better understanding of the processes underlying global affairs, and am also thinking about such events more critically and knowledgeably.

-Lauren Elisabeth Gatt, Australia

"Attending the IYLC provided me with a golden opportunity not only to learn about international organizations and international law but also to put this knowledge into practice. Thanks to the simulations, I now feel more confident when speaking in public and I also learnt a lot about leadership. However, what I appreciate the most from this wonderful conference is that I have friends from all over the world and we were able to share our cultures and traditions. "

- Maria Jose Lucena Cobacho, Spain

"The simulations and discussions offered by the IYLC have inculcated in me an understanding of the different countries and cultures that exist in the world, but, most importantly, they have taught me how to accept differences of opinion and of the pressing need to find consensus in the midst of such differences."
-Aitzaz Rehman Sheikh, Pakistan

The interactions, simulations and meetings with professionals really brought theoretical international relations classes to life.
The simulations deepened my understanding and knowledge of the Security Council, United Nations and International Criminal Court. This has enriched my academic experience and created a bigger fascination for the international arena, framing the direction for my eventual master’s thesis.

-Tikwiza Silubonde, Zambia
