The right to participate as part of the European protection of national minorities

The right to participate as part of the European protection of national minorities Abstract This thesis provides an insight into the subject of the right of national minorities to effective participation, especially in the light of the European regional level of minority rights regulation. The main goal of the work is to define the specific means and procedures whereby states can ensure the effective participation of persons belonging to national minorities in various areas of public life. The Council of Europe's Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities serves as the focal point of the work, as it so far contains the only legally binding provision at European level guaranteeing minorities the right to effective participation. The thesis itself is divided into four chapters. The initial chapter of the work provides an overview of the right to effective participation in a general sense in the context of international protection of human rights. In the second chapter the author scrutinizes the position of the right to effective participation in documents on minority protection at universal and regional level, as well as in other international conventions that may be relevant in this regard. The following chapters of the work focus predominantly on the above­mentioned Framework Convention....

LATE TRANSPOSITION PHENOMENON IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC The implementation of European law is a necessary precondition for the functionality of European integration. However, while the Union institutions carry out the legislative work, the implementation of European law is a task for the Member States. They must adapt their legal systems accordingly and enforce EU rules effectively. In the case of directives, the basic condition for their effectiveness is transposition into national law, which usually requires to propose a new act of Parliament. The Czech Republic has long been one of the countries with a high proportion of late transposition of EU directives. Despite the generally accepted claim that the culprit of these transposition failures lays in the Czech Parliament, research refutes such views. Although the Chamber of Deputies is relatively autonomous from the Government, its deliberations are lengthy, and the Chamber of Deputies' Rules of Procedures offers only a limited range of instruments to guide parliamentary deliberations, transposition delays occur already at the executive level. This is even though the Czech Republic has a series of robust measures to improve the planning of implementation works, but these are not enforced in practice. Presented research is based on data on the legislative...
