Pork barrel in Czechia in 2003-2009: spatial dimension and the identification of some causal factors
Hána, David
The aim of this diploma thesis is an attempt to reveal a regularity and dependence in spatial distribution of the pork barrel (i.e. the parliamentary grants) in the case of Czechia in 2003-2009. Moreover, the thesis attempts to identify some undermining factors of the proven spatial pattern in allocation of pork barrel financial sources. The selection of supported projects highly depends on subjective preferences of particular deputies being influenced by many factors. Accordingly, the diploma thesis examines a role of the spatial distribution of deputies' places of living and their influences on the spatial allocation of the pork barrel through the state budget being approved in the Lower House.
Economic inequalities in EU: capital flows between the core and the periphery
Deďo, Peter ; Hána, David (advisor) ; Kebza, Martin (referee)
The subject of this bachelor thesis is the economic inequalities in the European Union between 1999 and 2018, with the aim to analyze the impact of capital flows resulting from dividends and remittances paid out on the development of spatial disparities between national states. The first part of the thesis attempts to anchor the theme into the concept of the World system by I. Wallerstein with an overlap into the historical context, which formed the basis for today's polarization of Europe. The following is a brief description of the pros and cons of inequalities with the presentation of the European Union's efforts to address this problem. In the methodological part there are described the tools for the study of variability and capital flows. The empirical study applies methodological approaches to the specific data of gross domestic product and gross disposable income coming mainly from Eurostat. Subsequently, the author tries to interpret the obtained analysis outputs. Keywords: European Union, inequalities, capital flows, Gini coefficient, GDP, structural funds

Görcs, Jan ; Hána, David (advisor) ; Pulec, Jan (referee)
Discussion of socio-geographic aspects of renewable energy sources in Czechia Abstract Modern society is completely dependent on electricity supplies in every aspect of life and the economy. The task of every developed country is protection and ensuring sufficient energy in the required quality. Otherwise, the lack or interruption of supply may paralyze the country's life and economy. The current energy problem lies on the fact that it is based on non-renewable energy sources with limited quantity. In addition, they have a negative impact on the environment. Renewable energy sources also provide limited solutions to the situation. This bachelor's thesis therefore analyses the assumptions, possibilities and potential of the development of renewable sources in Czech electricity, in relation to the energy position, environment, electricity, society and economy. The aim of the thesis is critical evaluation of the pros and cons of the implementation of alternative energy sources in the energy mix. Key words: renewable energy sources, alternative sources of energy, energy mix, solar energy, wind energy, water energy

Global production networks of transnational apparel corporations
Vyšatová, Martina ; Brabcová, Štěpánka (advisor) ; Hána, David (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with multinationals corporations in the clothing industry with branch offices in the Czechia, in the context of the theory of global production network. It is a relatively new theory, which deals with geographically dispersed but functionally integrated unit of production network. NNS production network has expanded in many countries of the world and their networks differ in the number of supplier countries and the geographical distribution of production. The main objective is to highlight the connection between parent companies and their countries and supply countries as well as to the context of the price and composition of clothing. Production NNS is largely oriented to countries with cheap labour and it corresponds with the main supplying countries, namely China and Bangladesh. Composition and price of clothing are often very different, and rather than a direct connection there were only partial relations. Key words: global production networks, apparel industry, transnational corporations, Czechia
Transformations of work localization in the Prague metropolitan region
Klíma, Petr ; Svoboda, Peter (advisor) ; Hána, David (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with transformations of work localization in the Prague metropolitan region in the period from 1991 to 2011. The aim of presented study is to analyze the transformation of work localization in context with duality of core and periphery and to determine whether the work localization is affected by highway localization in hinterland and underground localization in core of metropolitan region. For the purpose of analysis I used data on work commuting from 1991, 2001 and 2011 censuses. The first part is devoted to the theoretical bases of work localization and to description of different conditions and processes that influenced work localization before and after year 1989. This section significantly focuses on description and explanation of the process of commercial suburbanization, which causes changes in work localization in the Prague metropolitan region after 1989. The empirical part is divided into two sections. In the first section data for municipalities are analyzed and is devoted to duality of core and periphery and to transformations of work localization in hinterland of the Prague metropolitan region in context with localization of highways. In the second part of thesis, data for basic settlement units from year 2011 are analyzed and localization of work in core of...
Global production networks in the case study of stationery producer KOH-I-NOOR Hardtmuth
Kokoš, Roman ; Brabcová, Štěpánka (advisor) ; Hána, David (referee)
The dynamic change of pace and depth in international economic integration is making its impact on the global system more significant than ever before. After political changes in Czechia we have witnessed the growth of foreign economic activity by firms, which are now allowed to be part of liberalized global economical environment. The subject of interest chosen is the traditional Czech pencil manufacturer KOH-I-NOOR Hardtmuth. Which is one of the leading stationery producers who competes with its rivals on a global pitch. This company has a long history and trademark in manufacturing stationery goods. In 2000 after the takeover from PPF in 2000 longterm CEO and now owner Vlastislav Bříza, decided to create a holding that would follow the success in the stationery goods industry. This would functionally connect the various industries. Theoretical background is provided by global production networks, recently developed by geographers in Great Britain. From a geographical perspective, pencil manufacturing has its sources traditionally dispersed. This leads to investigating how these sources are connected and the way the production line reaches the final end product. Another noticeable phenomenon is the concentration of stationery producers in South Bohemia. This region may have valuable traditional...
The role of the state in regional development: application of contemporary regional development theories in the case of selected support programs
Hána, David ; Blažek, Jiří (advisor) ; Květoň, Viktor (referee) ; Toth, Petr (referee)
The state plays a prominent role in the process of regional development. State interventions might bring radical influences into the entire socioeconomic system, to which the other actors of regional development have to adapt. Importantly, the state administrates a large amount of funds, creates large numbers of jobs, and it is led by "elites" which might influence the other people's opinions. The need for studying of the role of the state and the expenditure side of its budget for an understanding of the mechanisms of regional development is recognized by many authors. However, deep discussions of the function of the state could be hardly found in regional development theories. The aim of this dissertation thesis is to contribute to understanding of the role of the state as one of major actors in regional development via investigation of the regional impacts of public support programs. To provide concrete scrutiny, parliamentary grants (so-called "pork barrel") were depicted through which deputies annually sent large sums of money from the state budget during its approval process in the Chamber of Deputies on projects with local impact. The topic of parliamentary grants is a traditional topic for international studies within the concept of the so-called pork barrel politics, which includes all activities...
