Spatial analysis of election support for ODS, ČSSD and ANO 2011 in the 2013 and 2017 Czech general elections
Charvát, Dominik ; Lepič, Martin (advisor) ; Mikešová, Renáta (referee)
The party replacement theory is a relevant research topic that this thesis is based on. This diploma thesis focuses on a spatial analysis of election support for ODS, ČSSD, and ANO 2011 in the 2013 and 2017 Czech general elections. The main aim of this thesis is to investigate the replacement of traditional political parties - ODS and ČSSD - by the newly established ANO. The 2013 Czech general election suggest the replacement of ODS by ANO, owing to the considerable decline in election support for ODS between 2010 - 2013 and the success of ANO in this election. In 2017, the replacement of ČSSD by ANO is examined because the election decrease of ČSSD was noticed in that year, and ANO reinforced its support base even more. The main raison d'être for this research is the considerable decrease of election support for the traditional political parties ODS and ČSSD and, contrarily, the success in these elections of newly established ANO led by Andrej Babiš. Data from the Czech statistical office was used in this thesis. The data were delimited at a municipal level. Spatial differentiation of election support was measured using the method of spatial autocorrelation. Change of the election support for individual parties across municipalities and over several elections was described using spatiotemporal...
Regional differentiation of voting behaviour in Czechia
Mikešová, Renáta
This thesis explores the regional differentiation of electoral behaviour and other topics in electoral geography in the Czech Republic. Electoral geography, which studies the geographic aspects of the organisation, process, and results of elections, for a long time developed mainly in Western societies given the absence of free elections in other countries. It began to develop in the Czech Republic in the 1990s and its goal was to explore the process of the transformation of society and the stabilisation of democracy, to compare electoral patterns observed in conditions of stable liberal democracies with the patterns found in transforming states, and to adapt them to the specific conditions of transition countries. Electoral geography focuses mainly on the spatial variations of electoral behaviour. It seeks to determine whether different patterns of electoral behaviour are based on the social structure of the population in the region, whether they are influenced by contextual factors, or whether it is a combination of both. Another important subject studied by electoral geography is the spatial patterns of representation, which however are usually studied in majoritarian electoral systems. The thesis is composed of two basic sections. The first section offers a broader theoretical and...
School as an Integration Partner. Interim research report.
Leontiyeva, Yana ; Mikešová, Renáta ; Tollarová, Blanka ; Šimon, Martin ; Čermáková, Dita
The interim research report is a summary of the findings of the School as an Integration Partner project, which deals with the integration of migrant background pupils (non-native language speakers) in Prague's primary schools. The first part of the report deals with the analysis of available statistical data, analysis of previous research and other sources of information on pupils with migrant background. The second part summarizes the findings from an extensive research at primary schools in Prague conducted within the project in the school year 2019-2020 and focused on the situation of pupils with insufficient knowledge of Czech as a language of instruction. The research focused on finding out the number of these pupils at individual primary schools in Prague including the estimation of their language skills. The research also focused on the use of individual support measures by schools, on financing support of migrant background pupils and on the existence of teachers specialized in teaching Czech as a foreign language.
