Abstract

In connection with the current census, Moravian Dr. David Unger, a psychologist from Kroměříž, Moravia, points out that ever smaller numbers of citizens of the Czech Republic are now defining themselves as Czechs. Dr. Unger argues that this is caused by a far too centralised system of government in the Czech Republic which does not allow for devolution. The Czech system of districts and regions is quite reminiscent of the Russian centralised system. It is quite unlike the devolved systems of government in Germany or in Austria. Unfortunately, the Czech Republic has not followed the example of these countries and at the present moment, there is no political force in the Czech Republic which would be willing to introduce devolution. This interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from 14th April 2021.
