Society For European Dialogue

The Society for European Dialogue (SPED), based in Prague, was established in 2001. It primarily comprises members with a left orientation and cooperates with other left-oriented organisations both in the Czech Republic and abroad. Despite its critical and non-supportive view of the neoliberal tendencies of European integration, SPED can be described as a pro-European left-wing association. It supports analyses from the perspective of the European left.

From the beginning, SPED has been trying to create conditions for an active debate around the key problems of social life from many different perspectives, including those of individual left groups. Thus SPED collaborates with Czech left-wing parties and associations or with their prominent members who participate in its events
