Immigration processes in Slovakia and the Czech Republic: profiles, similarities and differences.

Krzysztof Białobłocki

The article is dedicated to theoretical and methodological analysis of the institutional factors and dimensions of stability of governments and political systems. Among them, attention was mainly focused on the peculiarities of the correlation of political and governmental stability with the parameters and types of political regimes (i.e. democratic, autocratic and hybrid ones), forms and systems of government (including presidential, parliamentary and mixed ones) and party and electoral systems. In general, it was found that among the factors that directly and indirectly affect the stability of governments and the stability of political systems in general, it is necessary to distinguish political, socio-economic, moral, ideological, socio-cultural ones, which can be combined and structured into institutional and non-institutional based on the variability of their relationship and mutual influence.
