Vít Havelka, in his latest commentary, analyzes the economic policies of Czech political parties' programs for the European Parliament elections.
As part of our election series, EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy publishes a special issue summarizing and analyzing Czech parties´ elections programmes. This paper specifically focuses on economic policies. Since there are 39 different entities running for the seats in the European Parliament, it is not in scope of this paper to address each and every one of them. Therefore, we decided to focus only on those parties that have, according to public opinion polls, a decent chance to obtain enough votes to win at least one mandate.
Before we dive into the description section of the paper, let us refer to our previous paper analyzing the most important topics of the upcoming European elections (see http://www.europeum.org/data/articles/analyza-havelka-stuchlikova-ep.pdf ). The following text draws on conclusions of the paper and will therefore not elaborate details of the current discussion of economic policies at the European level. It solely focuses on the party manifestos and comments them regarding general European political debate.
