The Institute for Politics and Society is holding a debate to mark the 25th anniversary of the Constitution of the Czech Republic - 'The history of building Czech democracy and its legal framework'.
The basic law of the Czech Republic was adopted on the 16th December 1992, and accompanied by several amendments and supplementations, this Constitution has lasted for 25 years. Would it have been possible in 1992 to approve a significantly different constitution and in a different way? How has the role of constitutional institutions changed over the past 25 years? Which constitutional changes were the most important? Does the Constitution of the Czech Republic need bigger changes, and, if so, how and where?
