Abstract

The Czech and Slovak system on the establishment of human rights institutions even if the countries served for more than 80 years as a mutual state, is opposite. While the Slovak behaviour on creating institutions is fruitful (Slovakia established 5 human rights institutions), the Czech Republic remained with a single one. Different approaches regarding this issue represent are a very interesting area for research and the article will define the main reasons for opposite institutional behaviour of two previously connected countries. The author will look at the issue through the lens of historical institutionalism and evaluate the data from semi-structured interviews from both of the countries.
