Kotyk, Jiří ; Šťovíčková Jantulová, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Dohnalová, Marie (referee)
This diploma thesis examines the impact of the professionalization project on a selected civil society organization that has joined this grant program. The theoretical part draws on the concept of professionalization and changes in the structure of the organization, its influence leads to the division of labor, transfer of expertise, institutional changes, as well as changes in identity or work procedures needed for the organization. The aim of this work is to understand how the concept of professionalization is understood by the donor, through the grant rules set by him, which should lead to the professionalization of the organization involved. Likewise, the work focuses on understanding the perception of the process of professionalization by the organization, which will examine the reasons and expectations for which it participated in the project. In the empirical part, answers to the research questions will be sought through data obtained from semi-structured interviews and documents related to the grant project. In the end, when evaluating the results through the studied professional literature it was found that there is a different understanding of the concept of professionalization by individual actors. Thanks to this, the managerial procedures implemented in the organization are subsequently...
Accountability of civil society organizations: Critical discourse analysis of annual reports of selected SCOs during Petr Nečas' government
Rychliková, Monika ; Šťovíčková Jantulová, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Muhič Dizdarevič, Selma (referee)
This Master's thesis focuses on accountability, which is understood as a relation between an actor and an external forum. The actor is accountable to the forum which means the actor must explain and justify their actions. This thesis regards as actors civil society organizations that provide social services. The thesis explores what forms of accountability are employed in annual reports of civil society organisations that provide social services during Petr Nečas' government and using which discourses. The era of Petr Nečas' government is considered to be an era of neoliberal reforms. The method used in this thesis is Critical Discourse Analysis by Norman Fairclough. The thesis identifies bureaucratic discourse as the dominant and discourse of civil society as the minority. Being accountable through beraucratic discourse serves for legitimizing an organisation. Civil society discourse reflects and forms identities of organizations.
Commercionalization of non-profit organizations - social mission versus demands of the market economy
Krčálová, Gabriela ; Šťovíčková Jantulová, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Legnerová, Kateřina (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the issue of commercialization of civil society organizations, specifically the relationship between the social mission and the requirements of the market economy, which organizations encounter in the implementation of their own commercial activities. The research part of the work is a case study, which was carried out in the social enterprise Přestupní stanice as a hybrid form of civil society organization operating on the border of the non-profit sector and the market sector. Through a case study, the work seeks to understand the experience that managers have with situations where there is a confrontation between the social mission and the requirements of the market economy, whether they perceive this confrontation as conflict or not, and how to resolve a potential conflict. The research findings show that in the researched organization, commercialization in the form of the introduction of commercial activities serves to support goals and social mission, and both of these elements (fulfillment of social mission and implementation of commercial activities) complement each other, constantly balance and cannot be separated for functioning.

Krempaský, Tomáš ; Novák, Arnošt (advisor) ; Šťovíčková Jantulová, Magdaléna (referee)
1 Abstract This diploma thesis deals with the current plan to connect ski resorts Svatý Petr and Medvědín in Špindlerův Mlýn within a case study. The approval of this plan will not be easy at all, as its realization would involve relatively substantial interventions in the Krkonoše National Park. The aim of the thesis is to find out how the decision- making process is taking place in the case of this plan, which actors are involved in negotiating of its implementation, what are opinions of representatives of the selected actors of the decision-making process and whether residents of Špindlerův Mlýn like or dislike the plan. For answering the research questions that arise from the goal of the thesis, qualitative and quantitative methodology, namely semi-structured interviews and questionnaire survey is used. The theoretical part introduces the reader to a more general context of the realization of the plan, the methodological part describes and justifies the selected research methods and the practical part deals with the results of the research. The conclusion summarizes the main pieces of knowledge. A significant revelation of this diploma thesis is the fact that without many positive side-effects of the project, outside the main motive to allow skiers to ski on both slopes without taking off their skis, it...
