Prague, Czech Republic

//////////////////////

In 1993 – four years after the fall of the Berlin Wall – TFAS launched its first international program, the American Institute on Political and Economic Systems (AIPES) in Prague, Czech Republic. Through academic courses, guest lectures and conflict management exercises, AIPES students tackle some of the more complex political and economic issues facing today’s world.

2015 AIPES students participate in a conflict management simulation at the Czech Parliament in Prague.

The competitive program brings together approximately 100 to 110 outstanding students from North America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia each summer.  The wide range of nationalities, religions, and ethnicities represented at AIPES, gives participants the chance to share experiences that can benefit their educational and professional development.

Inside the TFAS classroom, AIPES students participate in an interdisciplinary academic course that explores the political and economic foundations of a free society. Accredited through AIPES’s longtime academic partner, Charles University, the challenging coursework includes readings from economists and liberty-minded thinkers including Bastiat, de Tocqueville, Mises, Hayek and Adam Smith.

“AIPES is an intensive three-week academic, social and cultural experience that will enrich you beyond any expectations and that will pay off through your entire lifetime!” – Carolina Zaccato (AIPES 16), Argentina
