The objective of this study is to describe the basic discourse of cooperation, participation, and partnership in terms of how it is defined in the process of democratic administration in the Czech Republic and its regions. This basic discourse is determined from a legislative perspective by the laws in effect within the country, but it is also shaped by the results of current research in the Czech social sciences and studies in public administration, and even by the media.
