Abstract

In this article, we have tried to present the theme of inner peripheries in the Czech Republic-using studies of three small villages. In our approach, inner peripheries are defined as socially and economically disadvantaged localities. The criteria for the identification of inner peripheries include selected statistical data (17 indicators from the 2001 Population and Housing Census and changes in population between 1970 and 2004). On the basis of these criteria, inner peripheries were identified as being typically located near regional borders and on the margins of large cities. Studies of specific peripheral villages were undertaken in order to attempt to shed light on this issue from up close (i.e. qualitative research) and to illustrate deeper connections not visible in the statistical data. In particular, peripheral villages tend to be characterized by similar demographics (an aging and declining population) and history (urbanization, collectivization, changes in regional and local autonomy, etc.). We may assume that peripheral villages are home to problems associated with the quality and accessibility of work and services and also with a strong level of conservatism (i.e. lack of enterprise) among local politicians. The study has also shown that the (non)existence of schools, active civic associations and individuals can positively or negatively affect social life in villages.
