The main aim of the paper is to assess the quality of democracy in the Czech Republic. The functioning of the Czech democracy is evaluated according to the international comparative methodology – Bertelsmann Transformation Index (BTI). This method has allowed the authors to analyse democratic processes in the Czech Republic in terms of comparative and theoretically grounded criteria while at the same time contextualising the overall domestic development within the setting of Central and East European and other ‘new democracies’.
