Types of corruption and anti-corruption strategies in Ukraine
Smorodina, Sofia ; Frič, Pavol (advisor) ; Ochrana, František (referee)
The thesis investigates corruption and the anti-corruption strategies. Focusing on the case study of Ukraine, it is shown how corruption can affect society and what particular measures can be undertaken for tackling this phenomenon. It is illustrated that the current level of corruption in Ukraine is high in all fields of public management: the customs and taxation systems, law enforcement agencies, the judicial system, business, and so on. The analysis of the Ukrainian government's anti-corruption strategies reveals that they are based primarily on deregulation, demonopolization, the creation of a strong institutional environment, and digitalization. In recent years, Ukraine has been able to achieve institutional advancements through the creation of new anti-corruption bodies and has initiated digitalization as a new strategic direction against corruption. However, none of these activities have brought tangible results so far. The thesis analyzes why the government's anti-corruption strategies have been fruitless to date and how the situation might develop in the future. Keywords anti-corruption strategies, bribery, corruption, European Union, institutional reforms, public officials, Ukraine.

Hardcore punk in Czecho-Slovakia: From self-organized political protest to political activism?
Bláha, Petr ; Císař, Ondřej (advisor) ; Numerato, Dino (referee) ; Frič, Pavol (referee)
Hardcore and Punk in Czecho-Slovakia: From Grassroots Political Protest to Political Activism? A Case Study of the North Bohemian Hardcore Punk Scene While security concerns are still predominant in Czech subcultural studies, other works have focused on politicisation or taken the anthropological perspective. At the same time, subcultures are the constituent parts of unorganised civil society. Many of their activities are oriented outside the subcultural scene, toward the public space. The present dissertation deals with the hardcore punk subculture as a part of civil society. Its goal was to identify the forms of integration in the public space that are typical of the subculture. The fieldwork was conducted primarily in the Ústí nad Labem Region in the years 2012- 2016. Participant observation and in-depth semi-structured interviews were the chosen research methods. Thematic analysis was subsequently implemented to interpret and analyse the data. The approach was selected following a wide-ranging discussion of the main concepts of subcultural theory, their specifics and characteristics in the post-socialist region. Of central importance were the "core concepts" formulated by Patrick J. Williams, who studied the straight edge subculture around the world. The core concepts could be applied in the study...
Functioning of Volunteering within the Family
Radová, Markéta ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (advisor) ; Frič, Pavol (referee)
The thesis focuses on the functioning of volunteering within the family. The theoretical part deals with the definition of concepts related to the definition of volunteering. This thesis also includes the search of foreign literature which is dedicated to the study of volunteering in the family. In the empirical part is applied a qualitative research which is performed by the method of grounded theory. In the thesis are employed in-depth interviews on members of three families in which more than one family member volunteers are actively involved. The aim of the thesis is to add a different point of view into the topic of transfer of volunteering in the family. This thesis points out the family dimension of volunteering which most studies nowadays marginalize. Exploring the transfer of volunteering in the family is able to provide a unique insight of how each member is aware of volunteering. It also considers how and for which reasons the family members are or are not committed to the volunteering.
A Volunteer - Puppy Raiser in the Czech Republich and the United States of America
Luksa, Linda ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (advisor) ; Frič, Pavol (referee)
This master thesis introduces a form of volunteering which is not well known to the public, so-called puppy raising of guide dogs for the visually impaired. This phenomenon is introduced on the background of a comparison of two civil society service organizations, one based in the Czech Republic and the other in the United States of America. These organizations both come from a different type of civil society but have many similarities as well. At the end of this thesis, the results found through qualitative research are presented, where these data were gained through interviews, documents, but also by participatory observation directly in the respective organizations.

The work is conceived as a case study according to Yin (Yin 1994) using the theory of networks of political actors, which is one of the most suitable for investigating cases of corruption (Potůček 2017). Furthermore, the concept of corruption is defined, including its development, and its types are known according to the academic literature. The aim of the thesis will be to find opportunities for corruption in the laws and also how these opportunities have changed over time, so the subject of the thesis is the period of public procurement from 1993 to the present (2020). The empirical part will analyze the laws and amendments for a given period of time in order to find corruption opportunities in public procurement laws. It will also be assessed whether the necessary changes have been achieved in relation to the reduction of corruption opportunities thanks to the amendment of public procurement laws. At the same time, a questionnaire survey is conducted among public procurement...
Non-Government Organizations as external "suppliers" of social policy in states where is not social policy of their own
Yaklyushyna, Oleksandra ; Frič, Pavol (advisor) ; Tomášková, Vladimíra (referee)
The effectiveness of development cooperation is currently widely discussed. Development cooperation has come to be criticized, both in terms of its appropriateness and for failing to address some of the global challenges that affect poorer nations. Respecting the differences of developing countries, therefore, plays an important role. It is a question of whether developed countries are aware of cultural and other differences and are proceeding in their help concerning these differences. The problem that the thesis wants to draw attention to is the functionality of development cooperation, which can be influenced by various actors and their beliefs. The main goal is to try to explain, using the theory named Advocacy Coalition Framework, how the beliefs of actors can affect development cooperation. One of the other partial goals is to find out whether and how advocacy coalitions are formed in the field of development cooperation. The contribution of the work is mainly the critical application of the ACF theory in the field of development cooperation in the environment of the Republic of Kenya, as well as the application of the Q method in the research of the perspectives of selected actors. According to the author, the work can also have other benefits such as providing a new perspective on the issue of...
Fulfilment of the public interest in monument preservation in the Czech republic
Krejzek, Igor ; Frič, Pavol (advisor) ; Jelínková, Marie (referee)
My thesis is concerned with current problems involving fulfilment of the public interest in monument preservation in the Czech Republic. Firstly, the term "public interest" and its conceptual relationship in terms of the monument preservation is explored in the theoretical part of the thesis. Secondly, the current systems of monument preservation in the Czech Republic including the genesis of decision-making processes of municipal authorities under the current law are briefly described. This is followed by an explanation of the connection between the generally proclaimed, yet critically unexplored postulate of "two-track monument preservation". Despite clearly defined policies and competencies, the existing monument preservation decision-making systems and processes seems to be characterized by considerable confusion, and thus seem to bring about some process-based ambiguities and conflicts. The thesis not only aims to identify and analyse these ambiguities and conflicts but also strives to provide a conclusion that proposes some meaningful solutions. The benefits of the thesis for the Public and Social Policy field purposes lies in the identification and uncovering yet unexplored contextual pertinence in decision making activities within qualification works in monument preservation, as well as...
Funding humanitarian non-profit organizations with a focus on People in Need
Typlová, Jarmila ; Štěpánková Štýbrová, Martina (advisor) ; Frič, Pavol (referee)
The main purpose of this thesis is to describe function of non-profit organizations, answer a question if these organizations are sufficiently financed and what is their place in society when there is no help from a state. In this text I will write about humanitarian non-governmental non- profit organizations and their unquestionable place in society. The goal of this text is to answer question on their fundraising, who supports them, how are the resources used and in general if the resources are spent efficiently. I will focus on non-profit organization People in need, its financing and relationship to the civil sector. The reason why I have chosen this topic is my interest in non-profit organization and humanitarian organizations in general - the criticism and skepticism towards these organizations was one of the reasons why I have decided to research about non-profit organizations. With regard to the length of work I will also briefly describe progression of People in need since its foundation and its fundraising by the Czech Republic.
