World Slavic Congress is Governed by a  seven member Presidential Council, a group of co-Presidents, all equal to each other, and up to three secretaris. They make all decisions together, in a democratic way. The number of Presidents on the Council is limited to 7 and the number of secretaries to 3. The duty of each President is to seek compromise solutions, regardless of their own interests, solutions which are the best for the majority of all Slavic people. Consultations and discussions of the Presidents take currently place over the Internet, or by other telecommunications means. Personal meetings take place only when necessary.

Presidents of the Council are nominated by Panslavia secretary always for one year. Currently there is no limit on the number of consecutive years each President can serve on the Presidential council. Each President has to be renominated every year, and has to accept the nomination in order to become a President (one of 7) for the year in question.

The Secretary, nas no voting rights, he/she has only the  right to nominate new Presidents each year and to receive from each of the nominees his/her acceptance. A new Panslavia secretary can be selected by a two-third majority of the members of the Presidential council; a minimum 5 to 2 majority.

Neither other members of Panslavia, nor any other persons have any voting rights, nor the right to nominate either new Presidents or a new Secretary.



History of Slavic movements:

Prague Slav Congress
(May, 1848--June, 1848)

Assembly of Slavic delegates mostly from the Habsburg Monarchy during the period of governmental instability in Austria. The Congress was intended by its conveners to counter the grossdeutsche plans being discussed at the Frankfort Parliament and rising Magyar nationalism. The Congress was the first organized attempt at political cooperation between the Slavs of East Central Europe.

The Congress produced two manifestoes, neither of which was acted upon by the Emperor, before being broken up by Imperial troops during the imposition of martial law in Prague. Despite its lack of concrete results, the Congress was a major step forward in the strengthening of the political characteristics of Slavic national consciousness in East Central Europe.

During the revolutionary spring of 1848 leading members of the Czech liberal middle class became concerned that the Slavs of the Habsburg Monarchy were threatened on all sides, either by the Germans, Magyars, Russians and that only in the Monarchy could they find safety. The clearest exposition of this belief is contained in the famous letter from the Czech historian Frantiek Palackэ in response to an invitation to attend the Frankfort Parliament. Palacky wrote: "if the Austrian Empire had not already existed for centuries, one would have to make all speed, in the interest of Europe and humanity itself, to create it."

Invitations to the Congress were sent to leading Slavs of all classes across East Central Europe. Of the 341 delegates who arrived in Prague in May, two groups were noteworthy by their absence. Russian Poles were not permitted to attend and only two members of the Slav aristocracy decided to participate.

From the very beginning it was clear that the primary aim of the Congress was to strengthen the Habsburg Monarchy as a home for its Slavic peoples. The agenda was divided into four main areas of discussion: the importance of the Slavs to Austria; the relationship of the Habsburg Slavs to one another; relations between Habsburg Slavs and Slavs outside the Monarchy; the relations between the Slavs and the non-Slavic peoples of Europe.

The best intentions of the Czech liberals who initiated the Congress were partly thwarted by the more radical agenda of a number of the delegates. Some of these more radical proposals came from representatives of the Slovenes and the Ruthenes who rejected the idea of a federal Monarchy organized on the basis of existing crownlands. Instead representatives of these two nations, neither of which had a crownland to call their own, demanded a reorganization of the Monarchy along ethnic lines.

The Congress also experienced difficulty over how to resolve the Polish question. Polish delegates from Austria and Prussia refrained from openly calling for a reconstituted Polish state, but the fact remained that if Poland was recreated, Austria would be substantially weakened. Rather than calling for the independence of Galicia from Austria, the Poles promoted a pan-Slavic unity that was not based upon existing political entities. This program was also echoed, in a way, by the future anarchist leader, Mikail Bakunin, the lone delegate to arrive in Prague from Russia.

Despite these divisions, the Austro-Slav vision of the Czech liberals prevailed and the Congress issued two manifestoes. The first was an address to the Emperor that requested a reorganization of the Slavic parts of the Habsburg Monarchy on the basis of the existing crownlands. The three Czech lands were to be united as were all Serb territories in Hungary; for the Croats there would be the Triune Kingdom and a single administration for the Slovenes. Galacia was to remain unified, but the Ruthenian language was to be elevated to an equal status with Polish. The second manifesto was a proclamation to the peoples, which affirmed the delegates' solidarity with all the Slavs, demanded equality with the Germans and Magyars in the Empire and a reorganization of the Empire into a federation of nationalities. That this last demand was not spelled out in detail is an indication of the difficulty that the Congress had reconciling the historic and ethnic programs of the various Slav nations.

The Prague Slav Congress was the moment when the leading Slav figures in the Habsburg Monarchy had to face this problem of ethnic vs. political nationalism and is important because the results of the Congress marked out the middle ground in the contentious debates that would follow over the next sixty years.
