Civil Society Development during Accession: On the Necessity of Domestic Support to EU Incentives. This article examines the development of Czech and Slovak civil society during the Eastern enlargement. While EU accession has without doubt benefited the consolidation of democracy, the impact of the European Union is often overestimated. We support this argument by setting side by side EU actions to promote civil society in the candidate countries on the one hand, and the Czech and Slovak domestic policies on civil society development on the other. The empirical evidence suggests that, contrary to what Europeanisation literature may expect, Czech and Slovak civil society development during accession cannot be explained by EU actions alone. Domestic support proves to be a necessary condition for EU incentives to result in the development of civil society in candidate countries. Sociológia 2011, Vol. 43 (No. 6: 623-656)

authority; student attitudes; role model

Characteristics and Types of Authority: the Attitudes of Young People. A Case Study. This paper focuses on the socio-psychological dimension of authority as a cultural-integrative category. The results are presented of research into students’ perceptions of desirable, positive characteristics of authority, providing an insight into what constitutes the qualities of certain types of authority. The dynamic interplay among social norms, beliefs and perceptions of real life influence the students’ view of what authority is, as a role model, in Serbia today, still suffering the consequences of the disintegration of social norms. Six hundred and fifty-five students participated in the research project by filling in a questionnaire on the characteristics of authority. The results of factor analysis point to three relatively independent types of authority: charismatic, traditional and bureaucratic. The results are discussed in the context of changing authority rank in a transitional society like Serbia today, and the capability of particular types of authority to influence young people’s attitudes and behaviour.

attitudes; Muslims; Islam; knowledge; prejudice

The Level of Knowledge about Islam and Perception of Islam among Czech and Slovak University Students: Does Ignorance Determine Subjective Attitudes? In this article, we examine existing levels of knowledge about Islam and other characteristics of respondents in regard to attitudes towards Islam and anti-Muslim prejudice. The analysis uses expectations derived from the integrated threat theory and inter-group contact theory when drawing on a questionnaire survey conducted among 716 university students interviewed in seven Czech and Slovak cities. Our results showed that the level of knowledge about Islam is negatively associated with perceived threats (such as fears of Islamic terrorism, and perception of problems with integration of Muslims into Czech/Slovak society) and, indirectly through the latter, with prejudice against Muslims. The analysis also confirmed some other (statistically more important) correlates of both perceived threats and anti-Muslim prejudice. These are personal contacts with Muslims and the Islamic world that are associated with more positive attitudes and affiliation to a church which is associated with more negative attitudes towards Islam.
