KeywordsCzech Republic, Romani minority, cultural diversity, social distance, social conflict, extremist attitudes
The article shortly describes the national and ethnic composition of the population of the Czech Republic and especially focuses on the history and situation of Romani people living on the Czech territory. It analyses the development of the state policy towards Romanies and the effort to integrate – or assimilate – them into the society. Author turns the attention on factors that hinder this effort and especially analyses the development after the fall of communism and the effects of new social, economic and ideological influences on the position and state of Romani minority. Finally the problem of growing conflicts between majority and Romani minority is targeted as well as the growth of extremist attitudes of the Czech public, especially of young people.
