Policy Analysis in the Czech Republic

The chapter analyses governmental and departmental advisory bodies as a part of the policy advisory system in the Czech Republic. The main proposition of this chapter is that there are various kinds of advice that the advisory bodies provide the government with as well as different roles they play in the policy-making process. Our analysis is based on the assumption that the role of the advisory bodies is to some degree determined by their formal framework (and especially by some of its missing aspects such as an explicit balance provision, i.e. representation of the widest range of competing public interests). As such, the current institutional framework of the Czech advisory councils seems to comprise several internal paradoxes and in fact gives the government broad leeway for strategic employment of these councils.
