Dynamics of Residential Differentiation and Segregation of Foreigners in Czech Metropolitan Areas
Klsák, Adam ; Ouředníček, Martin (advisor) ; Čermák, Zdeněk (referee) ; Uherek, Zdeněk (referee)
Czechia has become a noteworthy case study of international migration within Central and Eastern Europe. With a steadily increasing inflow of international migrants, it is anticipated that their contribution to the societal and urban dynamics will become more pronounced. This influx has led to a rise in socio-economic and ethnic heterogeneity, reflected in spatial patterns where distinctive population groups are localized. The expe- riences from traditional immigration countries indicate that the voluntary concentration of foreigners into ethnic enclaves often serves as an intermediary phase in the integration process. However, it can also pose significant risks in situations where immigrants are not willing to participate in broader society or face exclusion. The primary goal of this dissertation is to enhance the comprehension of the spatial distribution of foreigners across selected Czech metropolitan areas and to explain the related phenomena on multiple scales within the urban hierarchy. The investigation seeks suitable data sources and methodological frameworks to analyze the current state, trajectory, determinants, and particularities of socio-spatial differentiation and segrega- tion. Furthermore, a significant focus lies in the nuanced and theoretically grounded interpretation of results,...

Fuková, Jana ; Čermák, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Lustigová, Michala (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the effect of noise annoyance on residents near Vaclav Havel Airport. Noise is a proven risk to human health, long-term exposure causes for example hearing impairment, sleep disorders, cardiovascular disease or annoyance. This term includes all negative feelings associated with the perception of noise. Noise annoyance can result in bad mood, reduced motivation and performance. Firstly the thesis deals with the negative effects of noise in general, but more attention is paid to traffic noise, with emphasis on air transport. Air transport, which is a very popular mode of transport, is a serious source of noise pollution. And although there has been a sharp drop in air transport demand due to the covid-19 pandemic, it is now possible to see rising demand again and thus a resurgence in noise. The aim of this thesis is to find out what effect noise annoyance from air transport has on the inhabitants of the municipalities surrounding Vaclav Havel Airport. In the practical part, the opinions of residents living near the airport (noise protection zone) will be obtained using a questionnaire survey and then compared with the answers of people from Kladno region as an area further away from the airport and less affected by noise from air transport and airport operations. The...
Labour market and spatial mobility in Plzen region
Duda, Petr ; Čermák, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Matušková, Alena (referee)
The Czech Republic underwent considerable social, political and economic changes after 1989. An important step was the creation of the labor market where jobs and wages were created based on market supply and demand. Due to effects of these market forces, unemployment was an unavoidable consequence. . Closely related to this was workforce flexibility which over the years became increasingly important. People migrating for work also had an effect on the housing market. The main objective of this thesis is to analyze the labor market in the Plzeň Region and the related spatial mobility since 2000 (with a brief development in the 90's). Another important objective is to determine to what extent the migration of the population is affected by the labor market situation and developments in the housing market. Two major institutions were used as the data source for processing thse reviews. The Labour Market in the Plzeň Region was mapped on the basis of data from the Labour Office in Plzeň. Data on development of spatial mobility and the housing market was gained from the Czech Statistical Office online databases and also from the Regional Office of CSO in Plzen. Key words: migration, labour market, housing market, Plzen

Martinovská, Denisa ; Špačková, Petra (advisor) ; Čermák, Zdeněk (referee)
This master's thesis is devoted to the character of the interaction and negotiation about residential development between the municipality representatives and development companies, the key players in the suburban development.

The theoretical part summarizes the institutional approach, residential suburbanization, spatial planning and the residential development. The practical part consists of the research itself. It was done as the qualitative analysis of the semi-structured interviews with the municipality representatives and development companies. The interviews are then evaluated on the basis of the theoretical thematic analysis. The interaction between developers and mayors is quite complicated because it represents the conflict of private and public interests. This leads to further negotiations. The character of the interaction and also the negotiations are more or less formed by various circumstances. In this thesis have been distinguished four types of interactions. These types differs in the conditions and requirements determination by the mayors and its fulfillment by the development companies. Keywords: suburbanization, spatial planning, developer, development project,...
