Popis In 2018, the Czech civil society went through political turmoil when the new government announced the implementation of a new economic policy for the nonprofit sector. More particularly, the volume of financial transfers of public funds to CSOs has become an issue of public dispute and raised the concern of CSOs, which was also widely echoed by the media. The nonprofit organizations criticized also uncertainties in the allocation of public funds and persisting administrative burdens, most notably related to the taxation policy. Despite their efforts to diversify their financial resources and despite the latest government measures, CSOs remain economically dependent on public budgets. This leads to policy efforts to exert more control over and to centralize these financial flows. On the other hand, there are endeavours by part of the public administration to alleviate the administrative burden and to open access for CSOs to EU funds. The participants of the Civil Society Survey perceived all other types of resources as less accessible to civil society actors. Despite this, they assessed the stability of funding higher in recent years. The reaction to the local governments and the EU is viewed in a more optimistic way. In general, CSOs see themselves as freely operating actors, although with little impact on their social and political environment. Still, the outlook of CSOs is rather gloomy, as they fear a lack of financial resources and mounting political pressures in the future.
