Urban foraging: a (non)traditional strategy of food privisioning in the city?
Růžičková, Lucie ; Spilková, Jana (advisor) ; Rypáčková, Pavla (referee)
A research of foraging represents a relatively new phenomenon abroad. In Czechia, on the other hand, this is an ordinary issue with a long-time tradition, but until recently it has not received much attention by the scientific community. For this reason the following diploma thesis deals with this activity. It consists of two main units. The first part aims to create the theoretical framework necessary for the introduction into the foraging study. There is a familiarization with the trend of the self-provisioning in general both in Czechia and abroad. A substantial part of the theoretical framework deals with the quantity and the typology of harvested products, the reasons for foraging, the characteristics of the harvesters, etc. It also outlines the problem of western academics' interpretation of foraging in post-communist conditions as a survival strategy. In the second part, using the mixed research methods, the thesis seeks to find out what is the tradition of foraging in Czech conditions during recent decades, who are the harvesters and what are the reasons and motivations to harvest. By statistical data analysis and by interviewing method, it is confirmed that people across a variety of demographic and socio-economic characteristics are harvesting and motivation is certainly not a bad...

Food self-provisioning in Russia: case study of Moscow and Saratov Abstract The main goal of this thesis is to study what is the peculiarity of food self-provisioning in Russia. The thesis tries to capture the main features in a self-provisioning topic, focusing on differences between the capital city - Moscow - and the peripheral city - Saratov. In the theoretical part of the thesis, different views on food self-provisioning, especially in Europe, were considered. The research part of this work is based on semi-structured interviews conducted with 20 respondents, 10 from Moscow and 10 from Saratov. The research sought to find out what are the main reasons to grow food by yourself, what motivates people to do it in "Russian" conditions. The results confirmed the hypotheses that the reason to grow food depends on the economic situation in the area of respondent's residence. Also, climate and soil play an important role. Keywords: domestic food production; self-provisioning; Russia

Spatial aspects of retail development in Russia during the transformation period and the latest trends Abstract The aim of this thesis is to analyze and evaluate the retail development in Russia during the transformation period with a special focus on retail chains in Russia. What regions they focus on, how their expansion took place and whether there is a difference in expansion strategy between Russian and foreign retail chains. These are among the key research areas of this thesis. The top 6 retail chains in Russia have been selected as these represent several types of expansion strategy. The analyzed characteristics of retail chains are: the city and time of establishment in Russia, revenue, number and types of stores, region of presence including region with the biggest concentration of stores, etc. Methods of comparison and mapping are used in the analytical part of this thesis. The results show that the biggest concentration of retail chains, both of Russian and foreign origin, is in the Central Federal District. Foreign retailers prefer to start their business with a focus on the bigger Russian cities, whereas Russian retailers are trying to expand as much as possible throughout all Russian territory and may not always start business in the larger agglomerations in the Central Federal District.
