Citizens move to the market where they apply their ethical principles of noneconomic character. Their consumer choices are motivated by publicly beneficial motives.

Collaboration and competition among nonprofit organizations working with migrants in Prague.
Pračke, Šimon ; Navrátil, Jiří (advisor) ; Muhič Dizdarevič, Selma (referee)
This thesis is focused on the relations of competition and cooperation between non-governmental non-profit organizations working with migrants in Prague. Based on interviews with representatives of these organizations and the study of documents, this thesis shows that classical theoretical approaches that deal with interorganizational relationships generally, i.e. those of profitable organizations in the market environment, ignore the specificity of non-profit organizations. Unlike profitable organizations, non-profit organizations primarily do not aim at profit but rather at the mission they were founded for. Classical theories do not reflect this dimension at all. The non-profit organizations working with migrants in Prague not only cooperate but this cooperation is motivated especially by their mission, although they are situated in a highly competitive position because they are situated in the same area, work with the same clients, offer similar services to these clients and are financed from the same sources. Keywords Collaboration, cooperation, competition, co-opetition, inter-organizational relationships, non-governmental non-profit organization, mission, identity
From Autonomy to Post-autonomy? Case of Autonomous Social Center Klinika
Böhmová, Ludmila ; Navrátil, Jiří (advisor) ; Muhič Dizdarevič, Selma (referee)
The focus of my thesis is on the process of transformation of the leftist movement from autonomous to post-autonomous. Specifically, I am interested in the transformation of the Czech squatting movement and the case of the Autonomous Social Centre Klinika. I ask whether it is possible to consider the case of Klinika an example of post-autonomy in Czech context, and which dimensions of the transformation can we identify there. In the theoretical part I define the concept of autonomy and how the autonomous movements understand it. By defining the characteristics of the autonomous movements alongside with theoretical literature, I then identify five dimensions of the transformation from autonomy to post-autonomy. Because the transformation is influenced by both internal and external facts, it is important to me, to firstly understand the neoliberal mode of thinking, its difficulties and other facts, which can determine the transformation. Crucial for research are the data I collect from the semi-structured interviews with respondents, who have been selected based on their experiences with squatting in Czech context.
