The main goal of the project is to study influence of the governance on socio-spatial inequality in metropolitan areas in the Czech Republic in comparison to North American, West European and other Central European experiences. Partly it is about analysis of impact of institutional structures, in whose frame the metropolitan areas are being administrated, and partly about analysis of influence of individual particular politics on socio-spatial inequality.

This study presents an analysis of regeneration policies in the City of Prague, which serves as one out of a series of case studies conducted as a part of a large international comparative study of regeneration policies. Based on the study of documents and interviews with actors involved in regeneration at the city level and in two selected model neighbourhoods more general conclusions are formulated about the spatial policies of regeneration in the City of Prague.

The article deals with voting patterns of major political parties in the parliamentary elections in the Czech Republic between 1996 and 2006. The results of analyses prove that major Czech political parties have quite stable voting patterns. The most of spatial variation in electoral preferences can be attributed to structural differences among districts. Key underlying factors explaining spatial variation of party electoral results are of socio-economic nature.
Social inequalities have increased in the Czech Republic since the collapse of communism. While this has not led to an intensification of territorial inequalities, yet the analysis of the Prague metropolitan area presented in this chapter shows that pressure toward socio-spatial inequalities might increase in the near future.
