Socio-educational Influence and System of Assistance in the Roma Community Enviroment
Beňák, David ; Koťa, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee) ; Kudry, Jan (referee)
The work focuses on the models of work with ethnic minorities and especially the process of social inclusion of Roma through the social pedagogy. The dissertation consists of two parts: The first part examines the theoretical approaches. The social education plays a key role in an effective process of social inclusion of the Roma. Other disciplines also offer specific inputs in the work with minorities, which cannot be overlooked; nevertheless, there is no definite model to replicate. Roma inclusion is a process that is influenced by many variables. The key factor is the mutual relations with the Non-Roma population and their historical development. Although the integration process has been ongoing for more than 20 years, we are still looking for an answer to the success of Roma inclusion projects and activities. The key question, then, is how do the project implementers perceive the key moments that make their project and its activities successful. Thus, the research focuses to identify specific approaches, activities, inclusion principles. The survey shows that the social and cultural context, that is Roma-specific, perhaps generates certain preconditions that make pro-Roma projects successful. Emphasis on individual approach and complexity at the same time makes the assistance in the process of...

Employment and leisure time in socialism and today
Zahrádková, Eva ; Vávra, Martin (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the state of present society and society before 1989 in terms of leisure time society and society of work from the point of view of shop assistants. I would like to approach and understand the phenomenon of work and the very connected phenomenon of free time. We hear this statement very often - "I do not have time for it." However this phenomenon is not new, this phenomenon has already appeared in czech research in 1960s. Based on automation and shortening working hours, since the second half of the 20th century, the amount of leisure time should increase. In 1960s, some theoreticians began to claim that society of work is at the end and moving to leisure time society. But is that really fact? Do we live in a society of work or in a leisure time society? Or none of these options are true? And what about society before 1989? And do work and leisure time differ in different social settings - I mean state socialism and parliamentary democracy? I would like to answer these questions through semi-structured interviews with shop assistants.
The Idea of human heing in Bakunin's anarchism
Lebeda, Robert ; Šubrt, Jiří (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee)
Abstract The presented study deals with Bakunin's conception of man in his anarchy period. The aim is to give evidence that his theory has legitimate place in the history of social sciences and that every attempt to disregard or to eclipse his opinions is unacceptable. This thesis tries to put his anthropological interpretation into the context of social sciences of that time and to show that the real foundation of the whole theory lies in natural evolutionism, which was a part of evolutionist theories of that time in general. This evolutionism was based on the results of the period scientific studies, widely using analogies between the natural and human worlds. The study begins with the theory of foundation and evolution of the natural world; from inorganic to organic form as the real essence of the Universe, then it moves on to the theory of foundation and evolution of the human capacity of thinking including the theory of religion, philosophy and science viewed as the historical forms of human intellect. It continues with the theory of the foundation and the history of human labour viewed as economic history. The following part of this study deals with patriotism and shows the connection between Bakunin's natural evolutionism and his interpretation of this phenomena. The last chapter deals with...
More time or more money? Predictors of the length of working hours in the European Union
Lehmann, Štěpánka ; Vlček, Josef (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee) ; Kuchař, Pavel (referee)
Štěpánka Lehmann: More time or more money? Predictors of the length of working hours in the European Union Dissertation thesis Abstract Present empirical study analyses important predictors of the length of working hours. It aims at integrating existing conceptions via an approach that would synthetize findings on the influence of different factors of the length of working hours at various levels into a consistent and complex model. For these purposes it uses explorative analytical methods applied on data from the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS). The thesis is based on two assumptions. First, it is more appropriate to study the length of working hours on the basis of its distribution than based on the average number of working hours. Second, the specific working hours are being established simultaneously at four different levels, the mechanisms of which need to be understood: at the national, sectoral and professional, establishment and household levels. The analysis performed revealed the most important predictors of the length of working hours and their mutual ties. The integration of predictors that are effective at the individual levels resulted in a model which reflects the identified relevant factors when analysing patterns of the length of working hours. The complexity of the working time...
Rumour and its change in historical sociological perspective
Soukalová, Kateřina ; Šubrt, Jiří (advisor) ; Šalanda, Bohuslav (referee) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee)
Thesis focusses on the phenomenon of rumour. This specific means of unofficial communication is widespread. Amongst academic scholars, there is no consensus regarding the definition of rumour, so thesis works with a sociological definition: rumour is a kind of unverified information that is developed in situations which are important to individuals, on one side, and ambiguous on the other. But this definition is quite new (considering the long history the phenomenon of rumour) and was developed according to theories which were tested in the twentieth century. Thesis illustrates how this phenomenon has changed throughout human history. Although the research into the field of rumours has been relatively systematically developed, a historical-sociological comparative work deal which deals with changes in the perceptions, definitions, and conceptions of rumours is still missing, so aim is to describe these changes from historical-sociological point of view, focusing on questions including where and how the concept of rumour emerged, what it originally meant, and how the concept of rumour was historically transformed.
Adolescents with Mental Disabilities in Children's Homes and Children's Homes with School an thei Way to the Adulthood
Farková, Marie ; Koťa, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee) ; Komárková, Tereza (referee)
Presented dissertation thesis deals with mentally disabled adolescents who are partially grown up in children's homes and in children's homes with school. The discussed topic is interdisciplinary and multi-layered. The aim of this thesis is to find out, describe and analyze what fulfils everyday life of adolescents with a mental disability and a marginal condition. The thesis also describes what these adolescents experience, what they encounter with, what they imagine in regards with their own future in the context of their life in children's homes. Multidisciplinary focus of the theoretical part of the thesis approaches adolescence as an evolutionary period in one's life and is based on work of Czech and foreign authors of evolutionary and social psychology. Adolescence is also considered as a period of potential risk connected with behavioural disorders which can cause child's placement in institutional education. The meaning of education is approached not only from the philosophical but also from the theoretical point of view. The thesis also covers the question of current possibilities of adolescents to complete their apprenticeship in a certain field of study. Besides other things, the text analyzes the concept of mental disability, shows the change in its definition, and presents sociological...
Critical media pedagogy - theoretical underpinning and contribution to media education
Valenta, Petr ; Sak, Petr (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee) ; Kartous, Bohumil (referee)
Critical media pedagogy - theoretical underpinnigs and contribution to media education Dissertation Mgr. Petr Valenta Keywords critical theory, critical media pedagogy, media literacy, critical pedagogy, media, ideology, discourse, power, symbolic power, knowledge Abstract The theoretical dissertation analyzes the traditional media education model issues, which derives from the orientation of media literacy on the dominant paradigm of media effects research in media studies. Media education takes the "media effects concept" and uses it to organize its own teaching practice. Theoretical dependence on media studies and the concept media effects leads media education to protectionism and normativity, which is reflected in the directive establishment of knowledge, skills and values pupils may acquire. This situation has negative effect on efforts of developing critical media thinking as independent on social authorities. Moreover, media education potentially reproduces the dominant modes of knowledge about media and society, without revealing them as social constructions. The theoretical basis for changing the paradigm of media education to become more critical and transformative practice able to form the student's personality as an autonomous, critical- thinking and committed citizen is presented in the second...
Feeling of Safety and Fear of Crime in the Czech Republic
Krulichová, Eva ; Buriánek, Jiří (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee) ; Jíchová, Jana (referee)
The research on feeling of safety and fear of crime abroad has been developed since 70s of the 20th century. In the Czech Republic it became of interest at the beginning of 90s after the fall of the communist regime, while the discrepancy between actually committed and formally registered offences resulting in the sharp increase of officially recorded crime manifested itself. In response to this increase there were written first scientific studies, which mainly dealt with the development of feeling of safety and models explaining such feeling in the context of former social problems (economic stress, trust in the government). In our opinion, however, we lack a comprehensive study that discusses the feeling of safety and fear of crime phenomenon from different aspects and intend to verify the validity of the results of international studies in our milieu. Based on the existing theoretical approaches and selected data sources, the study therefore aims to illuminate the structure of the relationship between fear of crime and individual or social factors that correlate with it. The study particularly deals with the relationship between perceived risk of victimization and fear of crime, i.e. concepts that were often used interchangeably at the beginning of research in this area. The analysis has showed...
Housing market and Risk of Homelessness in the Czech republic
Mikeszová, Martina ; Vlček, Josef (advisor) ; Havlík, Radomír (referee) ; Matoušek, Oldřich (referee)
Martina Mikeszová : PHD DISSERTATION - HOUSING MARKET AND RISK OF HOMELESSNESS IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC. ABSTRACT The PhD dissertation focuses on the theme of loss of permanent housing together with the problematic of housing affordability in the Czech Republic. In the first part, the objective is to identify the types of households potentially at risk of being unable to afford housing since 2000, and to trace the development of regional differences in the percentage of at-risk households in the Czech Republic. In the regard to the end of deregulation process in recent years, the analysis of housing (un)affordability of "market" rent housing shows the possible social consequences of the process. Owing to the absence of useful aggregate data on incomes and expenditures for different household types in the regions of the Czech Republic, the alternative data sources and the simulation methodology for measuring housing affordability which combines available regional wage statistics and data on market rents were used. The results indicate that the general risk of being unable to afford rental housing and regional differences in housing affordability are both decreasing. Not only the stagnation of market rent growth related to the growth of household income is behind the development. The main reason is the fact that...
