This course has a predominantly application character and it is designed mainly for foreign students. The content of the course is formed by three interconnected blocks and introduces students to the process of the Czech Republic’s public sector reforms. In the first block, the range of reforms in the Czech Republic will be introduced to the students and the reform process will be characterized on the level of the central government. The second block describes the process of fiscal decentralization, and in the third block, students will get more familiar with the reforms of selected public sector segments.
