This thesis examines phenomenon of illegal large-scale migration in Central Europe after the 1989 when the world communist system was disintegrated. Large-scale illegal migration appeared as one of side effects of the development towards democracy and free market economy. This thesis identifies impact of different policies in areas of the legal and social environment, humanitarian aid and international development aid as well as measures in the area of international politics related to large-scale migration. Identification of solutions in terms of cost-effectiveness and political acceptability is one of conditions identified for future enlargement of European structures, especially adaptation of Central European countries by the European Union. Based on its nature, large-scale migration raise a number of challenges for public policy: refugee support and administration, crime control, labor market regulation with respect to the foreign labor force, and integration of increasingly diverse categories of migrants. The social and economic conditions of the transit countries such as the Czech Republic create favorable environment for migrants coming from East European and developing countries. However, there is still no successful and comprehensive official policy because of lack of experience of the Central European governments with migration, which has still more transit rather than immigration character
