Intercultural Dialogue Europe



Major Challenges 

The integration of Roma community and migrants in Czech Republic;
certain xenophobic sentiments inside society persist.

Main Interpretations

Not yet developed as a general societal strategy and more seen as a result of artistic encounters

1. General Authority

No general authority, but main actors:

Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (MLSA) with Committee for the Integration of Foreigners

The Ministry coordinates all immigrants' integration issues and is responsible for equal rights issues in social life. The Committee includes representatives of other ministries and public offices, as well as representatives of professional and academic associations, local and regional authorities, NGOs and associations of foreigners.

EX: Annual government campaign against racism (since 2000) is to support mutual tolerance and help remove prejudices against minorities and foreigners in Czech society.


  • Principles of Foreigners Integration Concept on the Territory of the CR (1999) followed by a Concept on Foreigners Integration on the Territory of the CR (2000). It aimed to develop a migration policy based on knowledge about different cultures. Implementation reports are submitted to the government each year including information on the main activities of key actors, major problems encountered and possible solutions to address them. The latest report was presented as Government Resolution Nr. 126 on 21 Feb. 2007.
  • Strategy of Integration of Foreigners in the Czech Republic (2003), with active involvement of relevant ministries, having their own annual Integration Policy Plans.

Ministry of Interior
