Economic Alternatives in the Czech Republic
Principal Investigator: RNDr. Naďa Johanisová, Ph.D.
This website summarizes part of the results of the research project supported by the Czech Science Foundation (number 14-33094S) that was carried out at the Department in the years 2014-2016. One of the goals of the research team was to map what we called economic alternatives in the Czech Republic (in the project, we refer to them as heterodox economic initiatives). These alternatives are economic activities that do not operate like usual companies do. They have goals beyond profit, often use democratic forms of decision making, tend to be linked to the local community, and do not always subject themselves to the dictates of the market. The website includes a map and brief descriptions of fifty such economic alternatives, as well as some of the related publications, information about the actors and the aims of the project, and more general information regarding the topic.
The website is currently available in Czech only.
