Rechtbergerová, Karolína ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (advisor) ; Frič, Pavol (referee)
The master's thesis focuses on the nature of volunteering in a traditional interest organization, specifically the Czech Tourist Club. The aim is to identify the specifics of volunteering in this organization, including whether the examined organization faces issues typical for traditional organizations and their impacts.

Data for the study are sourced from interviews with organization employees and volunteers, a questionnaire survey conducted within the Czech Tourist Club, and documents of the organization. The research yields significant insights into volunteering within a traditional interest organization. The findings confirm challenges faced by traditional organizations related to aging of their members and declining membership. Moreover, the results offer new perspectives on volunteering in this type of organization and volunteering in general. Changing life values and attitudes among individuals result in volunteers having different priorities and expectations, emphasizing the need for organizations to adapt and align with societal changes.

Perglová, Zdeňka ; Hejzlarová, Eva (advisor) ; Frič, Pavol (referee)
The theme of this paper is mutual support between women in political parties as one of the means to improve equal representation of women in politics.

It also considers the importance of monitoring representation not only by numbers, but also by the division of power in terms of gender. It studies the queen bee phenomenon which manifests itself in male-dominated environments. It introduces basic types of women's mutual support such as sharing, networking, women's platforms, and mentoring. The goal of the paper is to discover, by means of the qualitative research method, what experiences women in political parties have with mutual support and which barriers stand in its way.
