Increasing numbers of organisations are highlighting the fact that civics teaching in the Czech Republic is a systematic problem that is having a deep impact on the behaviour of society. Unfortunately, many people do not understand the system in which they live. Distrust and scepticism then have a direct impact on election results and the degree to which we are influenced by fake news and populist campaigning.
Speakers: Karel Strachota (People in Need), Radim Štěrba (Faculty of Education, Masaryk University), representative of the Civics Commission at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Jaroslav Poláček (TOPAZ).
Debate chaired by Jiří Kozák, director of CEVRO.
Organised by the Václav Havel Library in cooperation with the TOPAZ think tank.
