Description Participatory budgeting (PB) is a modern trend that involves citizens in decisions on how to distribute public resources. Assuming that the identified drawbacks of the whole process of PB are described as internal and external factors, simple criteria were developed to predict the fate of PB. These criteria reflect stakeholders’ decision about PB process continuation in the future. Using panel data between 2017-2022 from the Czech Republic, it appears that the selected criteria were evaluated as an upgrading process, signalling the continuation of PB. However, this does not mean abandoning the process in the case of downgrading. The results indicate that there is a certain probability for upgrading PB to continue, while the fate for downgrading PB is indeterminate and could depend on other factors. In the case of new governance after an electoral change, the use of the criteria could help explain the actual situation regarding the interest of stakeholders in the PB process.
