Description In the Czech Republic, the opportunities for the non-profit organizations to participate in the law making process and in the preparation of public policy documents are still rather limited. Even though until recently it was not common for the public to participate in the creation of new laws, there were always several ways how to influence their preparation. The non-profit organizations could attempt to push their proposals through their delegates: Members of Parliament, even if the actual effectiveness of these efforts is rather doubtful. On the other hand, it is impossible not to see the strong lobbyism of many groups through the Members of Parliament, who have the right to make amendments to bills. This lobbyism can dramatically influence the contents of legislative acts to the disadvantage of the public. The paper discusses not only the hot news in public participation, the above-mentioned Methodology, a guide for the public on how to comment on legislative bills, but it also describes the other ways of public participation in the law making process include consultations, working groups, round table meetings, public discussions, hearings or meetings.
