Searching for a solution to the European migrant crisis seems to divide more than unify countries in this situation. Migrant quotas are the source of tension between the European Union and some countries especially those from V4 Group (Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia). The European Commission took the Czech Republic with Hungary and Poland to the European Court of Justice. The case is in progress and we can ask: is the infringement procedure of the European Commission against the Czech Republic justified?

A five-year term has passed and Czech citizens will be electing their new head of state. The Ministry of Interior has now confirmed the high number of nine candidates, including the current president Miloš Zeman, who is under a wave of criticism for his incompetence. The Czechs are confronted with a large range of new programs and even though Zeman's popularity remains strong, many will be wondering if a new face in the Prague Castle would be an improvement for the country? Could we expect a switch in the direction of Czech politics? Authors are Marie Lebeslé, student of a Pre-Med course in Prague and Nicolas-Vincent Eberhard, high school student.

This year, the legislative elections in Czech Republic (October 20th and 21st, 2017) took place in a particularly complex atmosphere. Indeed, the vote was marked by the clear victory of the liberal and populist party ANO (“Yes” in Czech), led by the former minister Andrej Babiš, which resulted in the collapse of the Czech social democratic party in power. Because this political situation is unprecedented, uncertainty prevails among Czech people. The question here, as well as among the Czech population, is whether or not this political disruption is a step forward or a step back for the country. The writers, Jan Kasnik and Alexandra Simaiova, are Czech students in the Dijon campus of SciencesPo Paris.
