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
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.
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. "

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
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.
