Homogenization type

The first  sign of homogenization category of electoral manifestos consists of ideologically various parties: all manifestos of the Civil Democratic Party (liberal-conservative party), the electoral manifesto of the Czech Social Democratic Party (social democracy) and a subcategory of the homogenization type formed by the Christian Democratic Union-Czechoslovak People’s Party. In general terms, the common features of these manifestos are the emphasis on defining state sovereignty and its unity. Although this manifesto group covers European integration issues slightly different, the emphasis on shared national awareness is evident. The next defining feature of the homogenization type is the accent on human rights and the promotion of a general equality principle. The last feature is the careful attitude to international cooperation, although there is a small inherent tension within the category.

These manifestos define the Czech Republic as a country with a common national and cultural heritage and acknowledge the membership of the Czech Republic to the European space, a country common culture and values at the same time. The position of the country in the European value system is not automatically followed by a stated requirement for deeper integration of the EU. The value of national culture must be defended by both domestic and foreign issues. In domestic matters is the manifestos strongly welcomed support for the Czech language as a tool for identifying individuals with the state. The last sign of the homogenization manifesto is the careful attitude given to  immigration and integration issues.
