The thesis deals with the topic of corporate social responsibility emphasizing especially its spatial aspects and the impact on regional development. It aims to discover the spatial pattern of the so-called socially responsible firm activities in Czechia including the motivations for choosing this pattern, and to assess the importance of these activities for regional development. Particularly, it aims to present the concept of corporate social responsibility from a geographical point of view. The empirical research using the case of Czechia is structured into two phases. The first phase, based on an extensive research of internet-based sources and a questionnaire survey among selected corporations, explores the institutional context of corporate social responsibility in Czechia and follows the activities of particular firms including their spatial strategies.

The major purpose of the thesis is verification of three premises by the theoretical methods, research of literature and other professional sources, and empirical procedures, analysis of questionnaires and available datasets. First of all if level of Islamophobia is lower between young generation or elder generation; then if higher level of knowledge about Islam (theology, history, etc.) allows lower level of Islamophobia or if it is valid in the opposite way; and thirdly if it is higher level of Islamophobia in Spain or in Czechia because of the more frequent contact with Muslim culture and society, or if it holds true in the opposite way.

Development of Handmade Glass in Novy Bor Region from 1918 to the Present
Šavelková, Šárka ; Kopačka, Ludvík (advisor) ; Heřmanová, Eva (referee)
Handmade glass is one of the most typical Czech items that has made our country famous throughout the world for several centuries. Although it is a very small sector of our economy, which by money value contributes only 0.1% to the overall manufacturing sector and 1.2% to the group of glass products, it represents a significant impact on employment in the Liberecký region (10%). The importance of this sector, however, lies in not the quantity and unit value of production, but in the profound importance its producers place on quality. The quality of our handmade glass is still vastly superior to the manual mass production of any of the Eastern countries. For a region such as Novy Bor in North Bohemia which has traditionally been synonymous with glass making, great handmade glass has a significance which transcends economics. It is also what integrates and binds the social fabric, and gives the community its identity. The crisis that hit the industry in 2008 was primarily due to the developments of previous years. It showed us that the world stature of Bohemian crystal, its traditions, brands and trade marks cannot be sustained without investment. Without continuing investment, the beautiful craftsmanship of glass making cannot be developed, nor preserved. Glass blowing, and glass making craftsmanship - like...
