Lyons, Pat. 2008. „Co občané České republiky vědí o politice a proč je to důležité?“ Pp. 177-208 in Mansfeldova, Zdenka, Aleš Kroupa (eds.). Proměny reprezentace zájmů po vstupu do Evropské unie. Praha: Sociologické nakladatelství SLON. 274 s. ISBN 978-80-86429-88-5.

This chapter shows that (1) Czech citizens know most about local and national politics; (2) the distribution of political knowledge in the Czech Republic is biased leading to political inequality; (3) in contrast to other citizens in the EU-25 member states, Czechs have lower than average levels of general knowledge of the Union; (4) level of political knowledge is most strongly determined by citizen motivation followed by access to information, and ability to make sense of politics.
