Educational Mobility During the Period of Expansion of Czech Tertiary Educational System - The Role of Economic Resources of the Family
Müller, Václav ; Šafr, Jiří (advisor) ; Německý, Marek (referee)
This thesis aims to examine the development of the process of acquiring education, and implicitly also social mobility, in the post-communist Czech Republic, particularly during the period of expansion of Czech tertiary educational system. In the context of the political change after 1989 and the subsequent transformation of the Soviet-type economy to a capitalist market economy, the influence of economic capital in society increased. Economic capital also plays an important role in the process of social mobility and acquiring education. Money can buy many things, such as books, computer technology, or access to a variety of leisure activities and hobbies. All of these things can positively influence a child's academic path. In the last instance, money can buy access to education through school fees. At the same time, the lack of financial capital of the family can be an obstacle to the continuation of a child's studies and can often create a toxic environment for the development of personal qualities that are necessary for a successful academic path. Even though public education in the Czech Republic is free of charge, I believe that economic capital plays an important role in achieving education and that it is essential to ask what role and how important it is. To this end, I use the statistical...

Attempt at Democratic Transition in Iran 1997-2000
Koláček, Jakub ; Maslowski, Nicolas (advisor) ; Německý, Marek (referee)
The thesis "Attempt at Democratic Transition in Iran 1997-2000" analyzes the developement of restricted liberalization and democratization, which was started in Iran in Spring 1997 by election of reformist presidential candidate Muhammad Khatami into office. The essay looks on theese events as a result of the longer cultural change which occured in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and as a consequence of the cleavages which split the Iranian political space into several different streams. The thesis uses a theoretical perspective based on the idea that Iran, in the course of 20th century, constantly evolved in the form of modern national state for which the Islamic revolution was but a regime change, which replaced one authoritarianism for another with a different ideology. Based on this perspective the events after the Khatami election are analyzed in terms of the transitologic theory through which the essay examines the specific dynamcis of political contest between the softliners who push for a democratization of the regime and the hardliners who take pains to preserve the authoritarian practice based on the theory of "The Rule of the Jurisconsult" articulated first by the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ruhollah Khomeini.
