    Abstract

    Slavikova L. and Jilkova J. Implementing the public participation principle into water management in the Czech Republic: a critical analysis, Regional Studies. The public participation principle is currently an accented element of European Union environmental policy. It is believed that by involving local stakeholders into decision-making, environmental resources will be managed more successfully. The Water Framework Directive introduces the public participation principle into the water management of all Member States. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the implementation of this principle in the Czech Republic as a new Member State and also as a post-Socialist country with no previous experience of such a practice in water policy. The evaluation is based mainly on qualitative criteria proposed by former studies. [image omitted] Slavikova L. et Jilkova J. La mise en oeuvre du principe de la participation du public dans la gestion de l'eau en Republique tcheque: une analyse critique, Regional Studies. A l'heure actuelle, le principe de la participation du public represente un aspect important de la politique de l'environnement de l'Union europeenne. On estime que, par moyen de la participation locale dans la prise de decision, on valorisera la gestion des ressources environnementales. La Water Framework Directive (la directive-cadre sur l'eau) ancre le principe de la participation du public dans la gestion de l'eau dans tous les pays membres. Cet article cherche a evaluer la mise en oeuvre de ce principe en Republique tcheque en tant que nouveau pays membre et comme un pays post-socialiste sans aucune experience prealable d'une telle pratique dans la politique de l'eau. L'evaluation est basee dans une large mesure sur des criteres qualitatifs presentes dans des etudes anterieures.

Umsetzung des Prinzips der offentlichen Beteiligung bei der Wasserbewirtschaftung in der Tschechischen Republik: eine kritische Analyse, Regional Studies. Das Prinzip der offentlichen Beteiligung wird zurzeit als Element in der Umweltpolitik der Europaischen Union betont. Durch eine Beteiligung der vor Ort betroffenen Interessensgruppen am Entscheidungsprozess sollen die Umweltressourcen erfolgreicher verwaltet werden. In der Wasserrahmenrichtlinie wird das Prinzip der offentlichen Beteiligung in die Wasserbewirtschaftung samtlicher Mitgliedsstaaten eingefuhrt. In diesem Beitrag untersuchen wir die Umsetzung dieses Prinzips in der Tschechischen Republik als neuem Mitgliedsstaat und ausserdem als postsozialistischem Land ohne Erfahrung mit einer solchen Praxis bei der Wasserpolitik. Die Bewertung grundet uberwiegend auf qualitativen Kriterien, die in fruheren Studien vorgeschlagen wurden.
