About article:
This treatise aims to outline the attitudes of political parties and the public debate between representatives of the political elite in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The attitudes of political parties and any shift in the perception of this phenomenon may be an indicator of further creation of public policy in the field of migration. In the text can be found the question of whether the reserved position, or even open hostility to migrants, has an impact on program changes Slovak and Czech far-right parties. The text is based on the assumption that, due to a different state of development of migration and migration policies (immigration, asylum and integration), the adjustment of migration in the programming documents of party bodies of both countries vary considerably. For this reason, the issue will not be processed by the method of comparison subjects of both countries, but only content analysis respectively diachronic comparison of the various political parties. The main hypothesis is the finding that the text content of Czech political parties shift in looking at issues related to migration and integration of foreigners. In light of the rapid growth of aliens in its territory, the Czech political parties began to detail on this issue, even in some there is an evident qualitative shift from the initially friendly approach to the current restrictive view on the integration of foreigners. In contrast, in the case of Slovak political parties is still a marginal issue, which is devoted to the minimum respectively no attention.
