Parenting skills of mothers with psychiatric diagnosis in the context of family policy
Pavlíčková, Karolína ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Hejzlarová, Eva (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the analysis of parental competence of mothers with psychiatric disorder, with an emphasis on the difficulties such diagnosis can have on the family's functionality. The most severe, in practice, seems to be the necessity to place the children in institutions, away from their families, in cases where no other family member can take care of these children during the mother's absence as a result of the attack. Due to the nature of the disorder, periodicity can be expected, which significantly disturbs the child's development and relationships within the family. The real impact was observed in the empirical part via a case study focusing on six families that have a mother diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. The needs of these families were mapped through interviews and were later compared to the current offer of non-profit organizations. The results were used to find out, which services are offered and in which areas do these families require support. Due to the nature of this problem and the necessity for systematic solution when it comes down to the provided psychiatric care, I reached out to the current Minister of Health, who commented on the present situation. The presumption that the biggest impact is observed in families with single mothers proved to be right,...

Veselská, Kateřina ; Mouralová, Magdalena (advisor) ; Hejzlarová, Eva (referee)
The bachelor thesis "Inclusive Education in the context of the Election Programs of Political Parties" examines how the topic of inclusive education is used in election programs of political parties and political movements in the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic in 2017. At the same time, thesis also focuses on linking this topic to the public-political cycle. The work draws data from election programs of individual political parties and from the pre-election debate held on Czech Television. The main finding is that inclusive education has become an up-to-date topic for elections in 2017 - inclusive education does not take place in electoral programs for elections to the Chamber of Deputies in 2013. Another finding is that 6 out of 9 political parties that got to the Chamber of Deputies after the 2017 elections were against inclusion and 3 for inclusion with adjustments. Most political parties see the problem as a whole in the current form of inclusive education.

By using method of content analysis this work elicits in detail the ways in how the counting in above mentioned cities done in 2007-2017 and how these results may contribute to interdisciplinary solution of the given problem. The last chapter gives outcomes based on analysis, which implicates diversity of concepts used in these documents, their aims and methods, and also possible suggestions for applications of the achieved...
Social housing in municipalities of the Czech Republic: policy design and target populations
Broklová, Tereza ; Hejzlarová, Eva (advisor) ; Nekola, Martin (referee)
The thesis deals with setting of a system of social housing in the municipalities of the Czech Republic. It is based in particular on the Concept of Social Housing of the Czech Republic 2015-2025, as the legislation on social housing in the Czech Republic has not yet been approved by the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic. The system is very fragmented for the above reason, there is no consensus in the definition, not even in determining to whom and under what conditions social housing should be allocated. The thesis builds on Schneider and Ingram public policy theory, the theory of social construction of target populations ("TSKCP"). The two main concepts of TSCTP - target population and policy design are the optics and subject of analysis. The most important research activity could be described as an analysis of the availability of social housing in 2nd level municipalities, which was implemented in the form of survey of 388 municipal webpages in order to find out the mention and methodology of providing social housing. Additional interviews with social and housing commissioners took place within one region of the Czech Republic, where we can presume similar socio-economic conditions, but due to anonymity, it cannot be specified more precisely. From the methodological...

Gender inequalities in the Czech labour market from the perspective of women in managerial positions - a case study
Holubová, Šárka ; Hejzlarová, Eva (advisor) ; Hondlíková, Kristýna (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with gender inequalities in the Czech labour market. More specifically, it focuses on women in managerial positions and tries to find out from what perspective we should look at the issue. The choice of this specific group of women is as follows because they are the ones who have gone through the entire career process to the highest management positions. An important partial objective is the related factors that can influence the participation of women in the labour market. The bachelor thesis is divided into four parts. The first part is theoretical and concerns the issue of vertical gender segregation. It introduces the basic concepts, substantial statistics, and previous research on the subject. The second part outlines the basic and partial aims of the bachelor thesis and related research questions. The third part deals with methodology and method of data analysis. It also contains individual stories of respondents. This is the last practical part that focuses on specific results and findings. These are interpreted in connection with the theoretical anchor and extend the previous research on the subject.
Pre-primary education: relations between kindergarten and family
Konrádová, Kateřina ; Mouralová, Magdalena (advisor) ; Hejzlarová, Eva (referee)
This diploma thesis concerns the topic of pre-primary education in the Czech Republic with a special focus on the school-family relations. The general aim of this study is to examine and describe the relations between kindergarten (principals/teachers) and family (parents of children) in the contemporary reality of these schools. Moreover, this text deals with the relations between mentioned stakeholders from the perspective of partnership and accountability which constitute its theoretical background. The objectives are fulfilled via qualitative research, particularly twelve semi-structured interviews with principals/teachers of public kindergartens, and analysis of relevant public policy documents. Based on the qualitative research among these respondents, it concludes that the relations between the actors involved correspond more to the concept of accountability than partnership. The text also indicates that accountability and partnership are rather contradictory concepts. The principals/teachers feel accountable to the parents and they also declare very strong responsibility towards the children themselves. The research findings also show in more detail the discrepancy between the strongly reflected interest of respondents in a partnership and its absence, with a particular attention paid to the reasons...
The concept of work life balance and its changes at the EU level
Kandusová, Veronika ; Hejzlarová, Eva (advisor) ; Hošťálková, Jitka (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to analyse how the concept of work-life balance (and reconciliation policies in general) is constructed and defined at the European Union level. In order to analyse these often implicit definitions, the European Commission's working documents from 1995 to 2016 are gathered and subjected to category and content analysis. Reconciliation policies and work-life balance are stable concepts, occurring in 152 documents over the studied 22 years period. Annual Reports on gender equality and documents connected to the European Employment Strategy are specifically analysed. Even though the "reconciliation policies are part of equality policies" argumentation is often stressed, the expressed goals are usually connected to the goals of employment policies and economic policies, with economic growth being behind this argumentation. The most represented policy areas are leave policies, mainly parental leave, and services for childcare and other dependants, usually connected to the same goal - bringing more women into the labour market.
