THE DEALS AND THE REALITY OF CZECH POSTMODERN WAR VETERANS

Relative Deprivation as a Possible Risk

Jitka LAŠTOVKOVÁ, Peter BRNULA, Lukáš NOVOTNÝ

The paper broaches the topic of the perception of the care and attention that the state affords to postmodern war veterans. The analysis is based on a qualitative paradigm and the authors work with semi-structured interviews with 12 veterans who were in international military operations and who are no longer on active duty. In the context of the relative deprivation theory, the paper shifts from the topic of one’s own perception of identity in comparison to other veterans to the reassessment of the past and the related impact. At the end of the paper, the authors focus the discussion on the need for better care to be taken of this group.
