Vít Hloušek co-organised with Ladislav Cabada a panel called „Strange Vehicles for Strange Leaders: Business-Firm Parties in Central Europe“. The panel took part within the 21st Annual Conference of the Central European Political Science Association panel held in early June 2016 in Ljubljana. Besides empirical presentations on Slovenia, the Czech Republic, and Poland, the paper prepared by Hloušek and Cabada was presented. The paper aimed at conceptual discussion rejecting concepts of business-firm parties, franchise parties, member-less parties in favour of minimalist concept of an entrepreneurial party applicable in different area contexts.
