the text, Barová aims to provide a throughout analysis of developments in the
Czech citizenship concept. She starts with a brief overview of the Czech
citizenship legislation and various policies linked to it since 1918. The most
attention is paid to the changes in the last two decades. The article does not
concentrate only on the past, but also discusses the Czech citizenship regimes
in 2009, still valid now (2012), and ongoing debates.
