Jana is the founding member and heart of the Prague chapter of European Horizons. She familiarised herself with the idea of European Horizons during her Erasmus programme in Paris at Paris’s Sciences Po and co-founded the first Czech Chapter in April 2017. Ever since she has been tirelessly engaged in the activities of the association and put her effort into its further development and expansion. She is especially proud of setting the tradition of cross-chapter workshops, the project coordinated with other regional chapters of the think-tank. From November 2018 until May 2019, Jana also served as Co-Executive Director of the European Horizons’ Executive Board.
Apart from European Horizons, you can also meet Jana as a PhD student from the Jan Masaryk Centre for International Studies. In her studies, she focuses on EU affairs in the context of cyberspace and new technologies’ impact on society and international relations, especially on disinformation and data protection. You might also meet her as a teaching assistant in International Relations, Europe in International Relations, Globalisation in International Relations and Internal and External Security of the EU. In addition to that, Jana also works as an International Degree Programmes Coordinator in the International Office at the University of Economics, Prague. May you get the impression our list of her university’s activities is not exhaustive yet, let us just add that Jana is also a senator of the Academic Senate.
Jana personally sees herself as an enthusiastic dreamer of mutual respect and endless fighter for democratic values. For others she might look like a madwoman at first and second glance until you get used to her speed of thoughts and speech (which is surprisingly the same in Czech, English and German). But everyone appreciates her reliability and readiness to stand up for anyone who needs it and work hard and tirelessly on what she truly believes in.
