Lyons, Pat. 2007. „‘It’s the Economy, Stupid’ Popular Support for EU Accession in the Czech Republic.“ Sociologický časopis / Czech Sociological Review 43 (3): 523-560. ISSN 0038-0288.
In this article, a comparison is made between economic and identity explanations of preferences toward EU membership in the Czech Republic.

The results presented should not be taken to imply that instrumental rather than ideological or affect based motivations determine general attitudes toward integration.
