Chyba systému | Symbolism during EU accession and our identity in the EU

This year, the Czech Republic celebrates 20 years since its accession to the European Union. Klára Votavová, a researcher from EUROPEUM Institute, points out in the political podcast "Chyba systému" by Czech Radio, that the accession wasn't as carefully considered as it might seem. And the idea of returning to Europe may have been overly optimistic. This is now reflected in the attitudes of Czechs towards the EU.

​We wanted to be the top students who were the first to close various accession chapters, but perhaps there wasn't as much talk about specific policies and what it all could mean.
