European Integration as the Main Topic of the Czech Discipline of International Relations
AbstractIn this article, we reflect on the research on European integration in the context of the Czech discipline of International Relations (IR). We pay attention to those academic institutions that concentrate on IR and, simultaneously, on European integration. We reach three main findings in the article: 1) a number of Czech institutions and scholars that studied the international dimension of the European integration were also concerned with the domestic level of integration; 2) in the Czech environment the IR discipline is marked by a distinct cleavage between the theoretically and methodologically informed parts of the research on European integration and its descriptively based part; 3) besides International Security, the topic of European integration dominated the Czech IR discipline.
