Urbanová, Diana ; Liška, Petr (advisor) ; Josková, Lucie (referee)
Savings and loan cooperative as a business corporation Abstract This thesis deals with typical features of the savings and loan cooperative as a business corporation. The aim of the thesis is to compare the specific legal regulation of savings and loan cooperatives with the general legal regulation of business corporations and, especially, with the legal regulation of cooperatives. As a follow-up of the performed comparison, the thesis identifies features identical and, in the first place, features different, specific for the savings and loan cooperative. Such specific legal regulation is a matter of a more in-depth analysis of particular provisions and mutual relations thereof. The thesis is organised in three chapters. The first chapter includes classification of business corporations and their particular typical features, some of which are present in savings and loan cooperatives, too. The second chapter deals with historical development and importance of savings and loan cooperatives, while putting accent on the basic cooperative principles, such as cooperative democracy or an emphasize on the membership principle. Then it explains the origin of numerous restraining measures applicable to savings and loan cooperatives and making them similar to banks. The third, crucial chapter contains an analysis of...
Cooperative as one of the possible tools of the economic concept of Steady-State
Dekastello, Petr ; Hájek, Jan (advisor) ; Vejchodská, Eliška (referee)
The thesis analyzes the theory of Steady-State Economy based on a research of literature as well as principles and starting points for its application in practice. The central question revolves around the viability of the theory. First, however, the thesis focuses on the context, i.e. the background and needs for the emergence of this theory. Thus, the research begins at a time of industrial revolution and the rise of modern economies. In the course of the research, the analysis also points out the phenomenon of cooperatives, which arise in the early days of industrialization, as examined at the start of the work. Later, after a comprehensive introduction of the steady-state economy theory, the thesis returns to cooperatives, as during the research certain parallels in both of the phenomena emerge. Consequently, the conclusion recapitulates and examines whether steady state economy has been proven to be viable, what could support its functioning and whether one of the answers might be cooperatives - considered they have been shown to realize certain assumptions of this economic theory in practice. After a review of criticism of both of the phenomena, a final evaluation and decision may be reached, i.e. the research questions may be answered.
Possibilities to increase competitiveness of consumer co-operatives
This thesis deals with the increasing competitiveness of consumer cooperative stores with growing Vietnamese convenience stores. The theoretical part focuses on cooperatives, competitiveness, shopping atmosphere and consumer behavior. The practical part is based on my own observation and a questionnaire survey. For this part of the thesis, I chose four specific business units, of which two are consumer cooperative stores and two are convenience stores. One of the consumer cooperative stores and one of the convenience stores are located close to each other in České Budějovice. The second consumer cooperative store and the nearby standing second convenience store are located in Chvalšiny. In the first part I compared prices, assortment, shopping atmosphere and additional services of all four selected stores. The second part is based on a questionnaire survey. I distributed the questionnaire to 200 respondents in České Budějovice and Chvalšiny. The questionnaire concerns shopping and satisfaction with selected factors in the relevant consumer cooperative store and the competing convenience store. It also concerns the ranking of these stores based on their importance to the consumers. The aim of the thesis is to assess the potential of the increasing competitiveness of consumer cooperatives in the context of the growing number of so called "Vietnamese conveniences".

Brostík, Ondřej ; Oehm, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Štenglová, Ivanka (referee)
The Transfer of Membership Rights and Obligations in Cooperatives The aim of the thesis is to analyse legal relations arising from the transfer of membership rights and obligations in cooperatives.

The thesis is composed of three chapters, each of them dealing with different aspects of the subject to be analyzed. The first chapter defines general terminology concerning the transfer of membership rights and obligations in cooperatives. I have tried to explain the different terms used in the Czech Commercial Code and to describe their mutual relations. Chapter two focuses on detailed description of the transfer in all types of cooperatives in the Czech Republic. The first part of this chapter describes the legislative evolution of the transfer as a legal institute. Next parts of this chapter investigate the contract of transfer and its constituent elements. To reach the self-contained description, the final part describes how by-laws of the cooperatives deal with this juridical institute. Chapter three concentrates on chosen topics referring to the transfer of membership...

Lhotová, Zuzana ; Halbich, Marek (advisor) ; Mildnerová, Kateřina (referee)
The topic of the diploma thesis are the tingatinga painters in Tangatinga Arts Cooperative Society in Tanzania. The tingatinga art is based on the motive of the African nature and on the lives of the people in Tanzania. These painters accept both the rules of the cooperative as well as the hierarchy of a family, because this organization is based primarily on the family interconnections. The goal of the thesis is to find which institution type is the dominant one and the principles of how cooperative operates. The relationship with the founder of this art style is also interesting. The thesis is based on the anthropology of tourism because it deals with a touristic art. Some of the approaches can be applied to the study of tingatinga painters but some of them are in contrast. Another question is whether the relation between the painters and the tourists is influenced by the process of acculturation. The art and the painters are influenced with the commercialization process and this thesis tries to capture this dynamic process and the influence of tourists on its creating.
