Picková, Monika ; Krátká, Lenka (advisor) ; Hlaváček, Jiří (referee)
This thesis focuses on recording the lived experiences and everyday lives of two generations of women, mothers and daughters, who lived in the city district of Čejetičky in Mladá Boleslav between the years 1968 and 2000. Research conducted using the method of oral history targets mainly the family environment and career prospects of these women, their time in and outside of work and also their general quality of life, as perceived by the narrators themselves. In this way, it gives a voice to women that have been historically and traditionally overlooked. By comparing the stories of two generations of women, we can observe how daughters followed the paths of life set by their mothers and were subjected to the pressures of patriarchal society only some fifty kilometers outside of Prague.

Hlaváček, Jiří ; Prokop, Aleš (referee) ; Řehák, Kamil (advisor)
This bachelor’s thesis concerns methods of reducing traffic collapse within large cities. Due to the significant growth of amount of motor vehicles, especially passenger cars, transport infrastructure of cities is often being overloaded. In the research part of the thesis, possible approaches to this problem are described. Attention is paid to the congestion pricing and to the results of its application in various cities. Also, problem of the first and last mile in the city transport, parking strategy and cycling and pedestrian transport are described. The purpose of these methods is a reduction of the amount of passenger cars within the city, efficient utilization of alternative means of transport and improvement of the traffic flow. The research also includes chapter describing the attitude of particular cities. Common characteristics of these cities are emphasis on public transport, efficient transport infrastructure (linked up with the city plan), good conditions for pedestrians and cyclists and also an effort to make the life in the city as pleasant as possible (ecology, job-housing balance etc.). Practical part of the thesis is devoted to an application of findings on the City of Brno. Current drawbacks of the transport infrastructure of Brno and the strategy of its improvement are described there. As the additional possibilities of the improvement congestion pricing, improvement of the conditions for cyclists and construction of new carparks are proposed.

Consumption over the Life Cycle: Evidence from the Czech Republic
Cahlíková, Jana ; Zápal, Jan (advisor) ; Hlaváček, Jiří (referee)
The main goal of this thesis is to analyze life-cycle consumption using Czech microeconomic data from the 2000-2008 Household Budget Survey (HBS). Inspired by Gourinchas and Parker (2002), who analyzed life-cycle consumption on American data, we construct the Czech average household life-cycle consumption and income profiles. It is found that the Czech average consumption profile is increasing over the whole life-cycle and there is no hump-shape in the profile, contrary to the American results. Consumption tracks income early in life and a breakpoint in household behavior is identified at age 45. Czech evidence on household consumption is interpreted in the context of the Certainty-Equivalent Life-Cycle Hypothesis Model and in the context of the Gourinchas & Parker (2002) Model of life-cycle consumption under income uncertainty, which brings a significant value-added for interpretation of the Czech profiles. The household behavior is interpreted by varying strengths of the precautionary (assuring against income uncertainty) and retirement motives for savings over the life. It is found that the Czech household life-cycle behavior can be interpreted in the similar way as the behavior of the US households. JEL Classification: D11, D12, D91, E21 Keywords: Consumption, Life-cycle, Household Behavior,...

Another part of the paper is approaching process with anti-state conspiracy center and subsequent efforts to revise it and the rehabilitation of convicted. The thesis is divided according to the time periods in which an analysis and interpretation of memories of the process actors and their close relatives is done.
