This working paper is an empirical study on the state and development of popular attitudes towards democracy and democratic values in the Czech Republic after the fall of communism. The paper asks what people associate with the term democracy, what their experiences with democracy are and how much confidence they have with respect to democracy. One of the paper's conclusions is that in a number of key democratic values Czech society has approached Western democracies. Yet, differences can be found at the lower level of individual responsibility for one's own life.
