Zájem České republiky o Čechy žijící v zahraničí na pozadí situace ve Slovenské republice (od vystěhovalectví přes exulantství k moderní diaspoře)

The paper compares the attitude of the state to migration in 1918–1938 with two periods after World War II: in the period between 1948 and 1989, and after 1990, as well as with the specific development in Slovakia. Each period is characterised by a different central topic: while the inter-war period is dominated by the topic of emigration, it is the topic of exile between 1948 and 1989, and the topic of the forming of the modern Czech diaspora after 1990. Individual parts of this diaspora are not only considerably scattered worldwide, but they have also undergone different historical evolution. The text summarises the attempts to change the attitudes of the state to Czechs living abroad after 1990, and it comes to the conclusion that a different attitude in Slovakia in the monitored period follows from the elaborated legal regulation. Slovaks living abroad are taken into account by the Slovak Constitution as well as by a special act on Slovaks living abroad; also, there is a special authority and other institutions of the Slovak legislation and execution.
