The beginning of the 21st century has seen a surge of citizenship tests introduced as one of prerequisites for obtaining citizenship in European states. The aim of this paper is to briefly present the debate about liberal and illiberal aspects of citizenship tests. My main contribution is an evaluation of the Czech citizenship test in light of the ongoing debate by applying Michalowski’s (2011) content analysis method on the Czech case.
