Beranská, Veronika ; Uherek, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Štěpánová, Irena (referee) ; Moravcová, Mirjam (referee)
The work builds on the scientific production on the theme of the resettled Czechs from areas of the former Soviet Union, which is continued treated on the soil of the Institute of Ethnology of the CAS, v.v.i., and introduces the latest conducted grant project, in which I focused on the area of health and folk medicine.

Through the use of commemorative narrations and life trajectories of the participating actors, the work maps the background of the arrival in new destinations, life in the 20th century, the change of the political and social conditions and the subsequent remigration to the Czech Republic. With a few exceptions, all of the actors figuring in this work became part of the resettlement processes - in the case of the Volyn Czechs after World War II in 1947 within the controlled exchange of the populations and in the case of the Chernobyl Czechs (and partially also some of the Czechs from Belarus and Russia) in the 1990s within the state-controlled resettlement after the accident at the Chernobyl...

Horáková, M. ; Bareš, P. ; Schebelle, D. ; Kubát, J. ; Uherek, Zdeněk ; Brouček, Stanislav ; Beranská, Veronika
To create a solid immigration policy that will promote integration and social cohesion immigrants, we need information about the composition and functioning of immigrant families. For this purpose should serve an information system on families of immigrants from third countries from which it would be possible to derive ideas about future societal needs and investments associated with immigration to the Czech Republic. Information system should facilitate the collection of data on the structure of families of immigrants, their place of residence and their needs. This information is very important in the development and implementation of national integration policy reflecting the capacity of social infrastructure (labour market, institutions for vocational training, primary, secondary and tertiary education, healthcare, social security, culture, etc.).
The utilization of data on immigrant families for the purpose of assessment of potential demands on social system related to family reunification
Horáková, M. ; Bareš, P. ; Schebelle, D. ; Kubát, J. ; Uherek, Zdeněk ; Brouček, Stanislav ; Beranská, Veronika
The methodology investigates prerequisites and proposes methods of utilization of data on immigrant families for the purpose of assessment of social and economic demands of migration and integration. The family perspective enables to analyse some aspects which can’t be taken into account if only individual data on foreigners are considered. This covers entries such as: size of the family, number of children living either in the Czech Republic and/or abroad (both dependent children and children with their own incomes), economic activity and incomes of the family unit, proportion of social allowances in total income etc.). This promotes better understanding to recent trends and allows appropriate adaptation of social infrastructure (in the area of labour market, educational institutions, health system, social security, cultural programmes etc.). Methodology pursuits some similar aims and further develops preceding methodology for the Constitution of the Information System on Immigrant Families from the Third Countries.
