Vlachová, Klára. 2001. „Legitimita demokracie a důvěra v instituce v České republice.“ Sociální studia 6: 23-45. ISSN 1214-813X.

This article deals with legitimacy of democracy and its relationship to trust in institutions in the Czech Republic. The author distinguishes between support for democracy as a form of government, and satisfaction with the development of democracy in a (particular) country, and searches for the factors which this depends on. As explanatory factors, the author first tests trust in institutions, then political culture and personal characteristics.
