Political populism takes many forms, but in recent weeks some Czech Government ministers have begun to abuse the topic of minorities. In the run-up to elections it is customary that, thanks to more aggressive campaigns and efforts to reach potential voters, the borders of what is permissible unfortunately shift in the direction of public attacks on certain groups, frequently committed through the media.

In this video interview with Czech Minister for Human Rights, Equal Opportunities and Legislation Jiří Dienstbier, news server asks about the reasons politicians abuse various topics, as well as what the options are for solving problems with coexistence in socially excluded localities. The interview also touches on how human rights are being upheld in Czech society and the sustainability of its democracy.
