The Rise of Populism in the Countries of Southern Europe after the Economic Crisis of 2008
Faltis, Tadeáš ; Lánský, Ondřej (advisor) ; Prokschová, Daniela (referee)
This work explores the relationship between the economic crisis of 2008 and the rise of populism in Southern European countries. The study employs a method of literature review, analysis of sociological data on the impact of the economic crisis, and an examination of successful populist parties in selected Southern European states. In the first part of the work, populism and economic crisis are defined, followed by an exploration of the relationship between these two concepts and possible methods for dating the rise of populism. The subsequent section characterizes the Southern European region and specific selected countries, namely Greece, Spain, and Italy. The focus is primarily on their structural problems that may be linked to the growth of populism. In the main part of the work, the impacts of the economic crisis on the selected states are analyzed, initially from an economic and social perspective and subsequently from a political standpoint. The concluding section of the work zooms in on the rise of populism in the selected states. Using the examples of the three most successful populist parties - Greek SYRIZA, Spanish Podemos, and the Italian Five Star Movement - the study seeks common denominators for their ascent. In conclusion, the work identifies historical structural problems, the...
Negotiating Identity: Second Generation of Lithuanian Immigrants in Great Britain
Dacys, Lucie ; Lánský, Ondřej (advisor) ; Fapšo, Marek (referee)
This diploma thesis explores the negotiation of identity among second generation Lithuanian immigrants in the UK and aims to find out how children of migrants reflect the life between the two worlds and cultures - whether they identify more with the culture and lifestyle of the destination country, maintain a Lithuanian identity for the sake of their family members, or develop a so-called third culture. The first part of the thesis serves as a theoretical framework and focuses on several key themes - the theory of migration is introduced, in which the emphasis is put on the history and present of Lithuanian emigration and also on the theory of transnational migration; the concept of identity is discussed, which is viewed from several perspectives - national, transnational, social or ethnic identities are presented, and last but not least, the theory of third culture children and their identity; and the process of socialisation and its specifics are also discussed. The analytical part is then a case study of members of the second generation of Lithuanian migrants in the UK and presents an analysis of their perception of their own identity. KEYWORDS Migration, identity, concept of self, Lithuania, Great Britain
Parenthood in lesbian families
Bláhová, Kateřina ; Lánský, Ondřej (advisor) ; Hyánková, Tereza (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with same-sex parenting among lesbian couples and its process. In the Czech Republic, it is possible for same-sex couples to enter into a registered partnership, although there is no option of starting families with children together under the same legal protection that heterosexual couples have. On the contrary, there is no legislation concerning this issue. That is why, although same-sex parenting is not explicitly banned, the state and society show no basic degree of acceptance of this alternative family form. That puts lesbian couples into unique circumstances, which they encounter on their way to and during parenthood. The aim of this thesis is to analyse the current situation of lesbian families in the Czech Republic using available literature and other sources. The thesis discusses the topics of the perception of homosexuality and same-sex parenting in the Czech society, the means of obtaining custody of a child and which ones are available, and what accompanying problems lesbian couples deal with on their way to parenthood. KEY WORDS LGBT, parenthood, lesbian couples, assisted reproduction, adoption

Job Automation and its Impacts
Vlasáková, Klára ; Kobová, Ĺubica (advisor) ; Lánský, Ondřej (referee)
This master's thesis explores how job automation has influenced a selected bank branch workplace and what role gender plays in this process. The thesis is based on a case study focused on a team from one anonymized Czech branch of an international bank where robots are being introduced into the work process. Between November 2018 and February 2019, semi-structured interviews were conducted with six members of this team and obtained data were subjected to an analysis, the results of which are presented in this thesis. Interview questions revolved around changes in the workplace and the evaluation of these changes by the employees. The thesis therefore examines, among other things, whether robots have had any impact on working hours or workplace interpersonal relationships, what control tools narrators have had to monitor the work process, how robots have highlighted existing gender inequalities in the workplace and what issues have arisen after their implementation. The case study has pointed out the importance of further, closer inspection of robot implementation cases, each of which may be affected by a number of specific elements. This micro-level investigation may serve as a foundation for a better understanding of robotic process automation as well as a potential source for developing...
Work in the late capitalistic society as a philosophical problem
Landa, Jindřich ; Hauser, Michael (advisor) ; Lánský, Ondřej (referee) ; Maialeh, Robin (referee)
Title: Work in the late capitalistic society as a philosophical problem Author: Jindřich Landa Department: Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy Supervisor: doc. Mgr. Michael Hauser, Ph.D. Abstract: There is no doubt that work is an important part of human existence and our lives, but it seems that now we are working more than ever before. Just a quick look on our everyday routine will confirm the following statement: work is invading all parts of our lives. Everything is somehow connected to work: we are working on ourselves, on our bodies, on our relationships and it significantly affects our perception of the world. The definition of work and what it implies has dramatically changed in the course of time and hence new challenges have appeared. In this paper I focus on some of these challenges such as the phenomenon of precariat, bullshit jobs, idleness at work, work as a center of human life and new anti- work movements. I am also trying to describe how these problems affects human beings, society and self-presentation of individuals. I also tried to problematize widely accepted idea about the importance of work in the contemporary late capitalistic society and also suggest few ideas how to improve work conditions and life of workers. Key words: existence, work, neoliberalism, capitalism,...
