Changes in Social Construction of Czech Political Parties during 2004-2016: Media Analysis from the Social Constraction Framework Perspective
Švajlenková, Simona ; Novotný, Vilém (advisor) ; Angelovská, Olga (referee)
The bachelor thesis Changes in Social Construction of Czech Political Parties: Media Analysis from Social Construction Framework Perspective is reacting to adopting the amendment No. 302/2016 Coll., which changes law No. 424/1991 Coll., on association in political parties and political movements in 2016. The law represents stricter regulations of political parties activities. It was adopted after 12 years without significant law changes. The assumption is that the perception of political parties has changed. In other words, their social construction has changed. According to Social Construction Framework it was social construction of political parties which influenced adopting of the new law. I will identify its changes according to Schneider and Ingram's theoretical approach Social Construction of Target Populations (SCTP). It represents values, ideas and stereotypes about the target population that receives burdens or benefits from the new policy. To broaden the perspective of specification of social construction of political parties I will use discursive analysis as a method of media analysis. According to SCTP media are one of apects which create social constructions.
