Strategic Culture of the Czech Republic
Beneš, Jan ; Karásek, Tomáš (advisor) ; Eichler, Jan (referee) ; Kučera, Tomáš (referee)
Jan Beneš Strategic Culture of the Czech Republic Abstract The aim of the dissertation is to define in a complex manner the strategic culture of the Czech Republic. Strategic culture is at first analysed as a conceptual phenomenon both in relation to strategy itself and to the theories of international relations. The dissertation introduces the different streams of thought about strategic culture and then studies the approaches of the key involved authors with a special focus on the discussion between the first and the third generation of strategic culture scholars. Concerning the fact that the strategic culture has been originally created for the study of the behaviour and strategic thought of major powers, the author analyses the historical and geostrategic peculiarities of a small state in the Central Europe and then defines own conceptual and methodological framework. Using the method of grounded theory, the important symbols and narratives from the Czech history as well as the most important moments in the Czech political and strategic thought and decision-making are being examined. The historical narratives re-appear and influence the decision-making, thinking and argumentation of the key actors in the Czech security community. The research of the key decisions and historical moments after the 1989 is...

Nováková, Magdalena ; Ochrana, František (advisor) ; Zápotocká, Veronika (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the topic of strategic management and planning at the central level of public administration of the Czech Republic, where the dominant attention is paid to two ministries, namely the Ministry of Regional Development and the Ministry of the Interior. The main aim of the thesis is to identify the current condition of strategic management and planning of both chosen ministries, based on secondary data analysis and semi-structured interviews with ministerial officials and public administration experts. The focal point of the research is concentrated on the analysis of the capacity (availability) of these ministries in the field of development and strengthening of strategic management and planning in public administration. Attention is also paid to specific obstacles to the performance of strategic activity of both ministries. For this purpose, is conducted a qualitative analysis, which in this context gradually focuses on both examined cases. Based on the findings and analysis of the current situation, the partial intention of the diploma thesis is dedicated to theoretical and practical recommendations and assumptions concerning the strategic governance of the Czech Republic.
Essays on labour force and its productivity
Štěpánek, Martin ; Baxa, Jaromír (advisor) ; Schneider, Ondřej (referee) ; Dybczak, Kamil (referee) ; Yerushalmi, Erez (referee)
This doctoral thesis presents four articles analysing labour force and its productivity. It utilises simulation modelling to assess the impacts of demographic changes, migration or shifts in productivity determinants on public finances and the economies in the Czech Republic and the USA, as well as statistical modelling to evaluate determinants behind workplace productivity. The first three studies assess the topic from a high-level perspective, providing economy-wide projections for the future decades. They also utilise the same core simulation model, an overlapping generations (OLG) framework coded in MATLAB, which is further developed for the particular use in each study. The fourth study, on the other hand, approaches the topic from the opposite direction, analysing the individual-level factors affecting productivity. Specifically, the first article deals with demographic changes -- population ageing and shrinking -- in the context of the Czech pension system. The findings show that the existing system can provide pensions increasing at the rate of change in nominal wages, be financially sustainable in the long term, or increase the default retirement age by only two years in the next decades -- but only two of these three objectives can be achieved at the same time. On the contrary, a structural change...

Závadová, Irena ; Kulhavá, Miluše (advisor) ; Jankovcová, Kateřina (referee)
The work focuses on a historical development of the institute of emergency services as coordinated activities, including development of the personnel and materially-technical provision, legal anchoring and development of field prestige, including the latter-day prestige, with a focus on the territory of the Czech Republic. Therefore, the aim was therefore to map out each period in terms of providing coordinated emergency activities, describe their legal definition in time and record the personnel and materially-technical equipment. Qualitative research investigation using historical analysis together with a study of historical sources, including quantitative survey research for objectification of the data obtained from a questionnaire survey, mapping public opinion not only to the prestige of the field itself, but also through questions corresponding with this area was used for identification of the aforementioned objectives. The work shows a summary of events set in a historical framework, leading to foundation of the first emergency and rescue service facilities, including their further development. From this point of view, it presents not only the individual periods, but also the providers of these activities. It presents development of the legal definition of emergency services as well as...
Human trafficking: the role of the EU and the approaches to the problem in Czech Republic and in Belgium
Haniaková, Tereza ; Bauer, Paul (advisor) ; Matějka, Ondřej (referee)
This master thesis aims to unveil and examine the interplay between different actors in the fight against human trafficking. These are: the European Union, the Czech Republic and Belgium. A content (text) analysis of the primary sources gives the answers on how those actors work with the definition of human trafficking and to what extent the two member states implemented the EU Directive 2011/36/EU and other documents. In addition to conducting the content (text) analysis, creating a literature review and researching on different discourses linked to this phenomenon, this thesis include two semi-structured interviews with the representatives of the Czech Republic and Belgium. Those offer deeper insight into how those states form this fight in practice. They unveiled different aspects in their own approaches but also aspects that make their approach unique. This thesis examines also how the new strategy - the most important document framing the fight against human trafficking and the country's priorities - is adopted and what generally will those strategies include from the year 2020.
The Strategy of Promoting Czech Citizens to the Position of Heads of EU Delegations
Urban, Patrik ; Hornát, Jan (advisor) ; Kasáková, Zuzana (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with strategies of promoting Czechs as ambassadors of the EU (HoD) since the launch of the European External Action Service to the present. The main research goal of this thesis is to find out whether the Czech Republic promotes its candidates to the HoD positions in the countries of its priority interests. So far, a Czech citizen has become an HoD in six cases. These cases are confronted with a categorization of priority countries of the Czech Republic which has been elaborated by the author. Then, the Czech activities in promoting citizens are analysed based on interviews with relevant employees of the Czech state organs. These actions are consequently put into categorization of lobbying methods of the smaller states in the EU. Based on the categorization of the Czech territorial priorities, it can be claimed that the Czechs have not been sent as HoDs to the countries of the Czech interests so far. Even their other applications have not been meant to place them to the countries of the Czech interests. On the other hand, there is a bulk of activities embraced by the Czech Republic to reverse this trend. First, the Czech administration exacerbates networking and informal meetings among the Czechs based in Brussels. Second, the Czech state officials have developed formal...
Analysis of the Position of the Czech Republic Concerning the Revision of Posted Workers Directive 1996/71/EC
Bein, Nikola ; Šlosarčík, Ivo (advisor) ; Tomalová, Eliška (referee)
This thesis focuses on the position of the Czech Republic towards the proposal of the revision of the Posting of Workers Directive, which was introduced by the European Commission in March 2016. Although the Czech Republic's statement was negative in March 2016, the Czech position supported the proposal during final voting in the Council in June 2018. The thesis aims at identifying causes of the position change using the Advocacy Coalition Framework and at confirming the main proposition, that change of the position may be explained by an existence of advocacy coalitions which tried to enforce their beliefs. The thesis concludes that the main proposition may be confirmed only partially. Although the existence of two advocacy coalitions with opposing beliefs was identified, it is not possible to claim absolutely that this is the true reason of the change. Two hypothesis were defined. First one is based on existence of the external sources whose presesnce was confirmed, as well as their dominant influence on the change. Therefore, this hypothesis was confirmed. The second hypothesis was disproved. The second coalition was much weaker and rather passive than the first one, so there was no need to overcome the "hurting stalemate" situation at the national level. The change was not absolute. It should...

It focuses on the conception of the right to education defined by the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. It also compares the article concerning the right to education with other international documents concerning human rights protection such as Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and Convention on the Rights of the Child. It partly examines the definition of this right under the Czech law. The thesis especially pays attention to the case of the Grand Chamber D.H. and others versus Czech Republic, since it is the only decision of European Court of justice concerning right to education which found Czech Republic in breach of the Convention.

This decision is significant not just for the Czech Republic. It has shed light on the issue faced by many European countries. It became a pilot judgment and was followed by other...
