Description This chapter maps out the landscape of Czech think tanks. It is based on two types of literature: empirical studies of think tanks and discursive institutionalism. Drawing on think tank studies, the text categorizes Czech think tanks as academic, contractual, advocacy, and party-affiliated. Drawing on discursive institutionalism, it differentiates among four major policy discourses in the Czech Republic: liberal-conservative, social democratic, support for democracy, and international and foreign policy discourses. While the liberal-conservative discourse is most developed, social democratic organizations present the exact opposite. Probably due to the general ideological and funding context, they are poorly resource endowed, not numerous, and not densely connected to other partners.
