  • Civil Society rating improved from 6.00 to 6.25 to reflect surging activism around the 2021 parliamentary elections and on pressing social issues such as the response to COVID-19 or personal insolvency reform.
  • Judicial Framework rating declined from 6.00 to 5.75 after a cursory investigation cleared authorities of wrongdoing in the death of Romani man Stanislav Tomáš following his arrest by police, underscoring the unequal treatment of Roma by the justice system.
  • Corruption rating declined from 4.50 to 4.25 to reflect to the lingering failure to address then-prime minister Andrej Babiš’ conflicts of interest even after these were confirmed by an EU audit, along with the proliferation of questionable public-private deals under his rule, epitomized by the ČD-Telematika case.

As a result, the Czech Republic’s Democracy Score declined from 5.57 to 5.54.
