Spatial aspects of sharing economy in tourism: case of couchsurfing
Lochman, Josef ; Vágner, Jiří (advisor) ; Ptáček, Pavel (referee)
5 Abstract A significance of platforms based on sharing economy principle in tourism has been continuously increasing. Currently, the most significant phenomenon is Airbnb, which allows residents to offer their homes for tourists. Even though Airbnb still works on basic peer to peer principle of sharing economy, due to uncontrolled development, it has been leading to a diversion from values of sharing economy. Unlike Airbnb, couchsurfing still retains values of sharing economy and promotes sustainable tourism. However, there is not enough data about couchsurfing. For example, this platform does not have any public database, which would outline how many people were accommodated through Couchsurfing in particular destinations. The lack of data about couchsurfing is apparent in the academic sphere as well. The vast majority of studies is focused on sociological themes like motivations of people to use couchsurfing or mutual trust among its users. In the meantime, the spatial behaviour of these tourists has been therefore underestimated. Creation of a database of these tourists on international and Czech national scale including an exploration of spatial behaviour in Czechia is the main aim of this research. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods was adopted for this research. The quantitative...

The perception of agrotourism in selected region of Czechia and Slovakia Abstract This diploma thesis deals with agrotourism and its perception in the Ústecký and Košický regions. The aim of the study is to identify key perceptual indicators that influence the operation of agro-touristic activities in selected regions.

The research itself took place in the months of July and August of 2017 in selected economic facilities in the Ústecký and Košický Regions. The conclusion highlights major benefits, points to further possible work and identifies key perceptual factors and conflicts that have been shown to influence both the provision and use of agrotourism in both regions under consideration.

This diploma thesis deals with an evaluation of students' mobility through ERASMUS+ at Charles University. In the introduction, I consider the research questions related to this phenomenon and I earmark some specific areas which I am interested in this topic. In the first research section I analyze the registration forms of the students who took part in the exchange stay at Charles University and evaluate the motivation that influences their decisions. Furthermore, I assess these motivations using statistical analysis. In the second research part was done a questionnaire survey among students arriving and departing Charles University for an exchange stay and I focus mainly on three areas. The first of them is the motivation and real benefits of mobility for the students who have chosen to take part. In the second part, I am concerned with the fact if these exchanges have a real added value for students in the field of convergence in Europe and their support for next integration. The last part analyzes the possible main problem of this project and that is its financial difficulty, which affects the student mobility strategy across all Europe. Keywords: mobility, student mobility, ERASMUS+
