On the Czech political scene, the issue of minority exclusion is becoming very topical. Especially in economically and socially disadvantaged areas, the „strategy of exclusion“ has a strong tendency to bring voter support and political success to those political parties employing it. With its focus and low attachment to politics at the national level, the municipal elections offer an opportunity to local politicians to take advantage of the strategy’s potential. The lack of media attention in regions that face economic and social problems only increases the risk of political manipulation, which presents a problem especially for the young generation. The districts of Jeseník and Bruntál, where the use of this tactic of exclusion is likely in the upcoming municipal election, is the focus of this project. It entails the mapping of the election campaign at the local level with special attention to the issue of minorities and their exclusion. On the basis of this analysis, two seminars for high school students will be organized. In the framework of these seminars, students’ attention will be drawn to concrete examples of exclusion in their vicinity.
