Is the supremacy of the Big Five, inherited from the mid-20th century, on the brink of its decline? Have the Big Five started to lose informal privileges which have been bestowed upon them over the past 70 years? Will that be followed by the reduction in, or even total abolition of, formal privileges?

Journals of the Institute of International Relations are freely available to the public from now on
The Institute of International Relations is a public research institute which aims to support research in the area of international relations and to convey its results to the broadest possible audience, which would consist of both professionals in the IR field and the nonprofessional public. We not only serve the academic community and professionals, but we also strive to contribute to improving the level of education of the Czech society and its level of knowledge about international relations as well. We also believe that the society has the right to open access to the results of research funded by their taxes, and particularly, we would like to make the results of our research accessible to the broadest possible group of users and readers, whether they be researchers, diplomats, professionals or members of the broader public.
