What about geography? External validity of evaluations of development interventions focused on labour market inclusion of youth in low- and middle-income countries
Šíma, Adam ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Latečková, Barbora (referee)
This bachelor thesis examines the external validity of development interventions, particularly those related to the labour market inclusion of youth in low- and middle-income countries. The main objective of the thesis is to examine and evaluate how experimental studies, particularly Randomized Controlled Trials, take into account the geographical context and how this is reflected in the interpretation and application of their results. A secondary aim is to explore possible new approaches to conducting systematic reviews using Artificial Intelligence. The thesis looks in detail at complex interventions and their relationship to geographical context. The empirical part focuses on the extent to which evaluations of interventions aimed at labour market inclusion of youth in low- and middle-income countries perceive these interventions as complex and how they deal with issues of external validity. The thesis reveals that many studies inadequately address and report on external validity, limiting the applicability of their findings in other contexts. This finding highlights the need for a complex approach to evaluating development interventions and points to the importance of a deeper understanding of different contextual factors to enhance external validity.
Experiencing Parenthood in the Global South Countries: Exploratory Research of Everyday Experiences
Kahleová, Diana ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Medová, Nikola (referee)
The thesis examines the everyday experiencing of parenthood in the context of Global South. The aim of this study is to explore the practices and experiences of specific parents and to find out which factors have impact on the differences between them in a certain space. Among others, the study is inspired by perspectives of everyday geography and feminist geographies, and it aspires to reflect on the inequalities via examined topics. There are four main topics studied in this research: division of childcare, child feeding, changing children' diapers and mobility of parents with children. Trough examining them the paper tries to highlight role of the space. The study focuses on parents of newborns and toddlers, i. e. the first three years of parenthood. The data collection was done by conducting semi-structured interviews with 23 parents in total with experiences with parenthood from 15 different African, Asian and Latin-American countries. The study has an exploratory character and follows the methodological principles of the Grounded theory. Through constant comparison of knowledge based on the answers of the interviewees and also the context of "developed countries" (mostly related to the Czech Republic) the thesis examines factors which impact experiencing parenthood in the context of the...

Technické a alternativní metody k šetrnému tlumení varoózy
Varroosis is a disease afflicting beehive on every continent except for Australia. Since 2000 the disease is known to be caused by the Varroa destructor mite. This thesis' first goal was to summarize information about this parasite and the methods limiting its impact. The second goal was to prepare and conduct a test verifying the effectiveness of the ultrasound method, which was carried out with the Varroa-Killer-Sound device. In order to enable the analysis, bee samples from two hives were chosen and those were then tested for the quantity of Varroa destructor females using the sugar shake method. The first sample group consisted of bees treated with the ultrasound method, the latter were control beehives, which were not experimentally treated. Furthermore, other factors were continually measured: temperature, relative humidity, and dew point of the external environment. The results of the research were analyzed by the STATISTICA 12 program.
Hunger games: Discourses of the G7 New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition in Africa
Milerová Prášková, Dagmar ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Daněk, Petr (referee) ; Profant, Tomáš (referee)
The New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition was launched in 2012 as the main G7 initiative to combat hunger in Africa. Its proclaimed objective was to facilitate cooperation between selected African countries and private sector companies by promoting pro-market reforms and investments in African agriculture. However, it quietly disappeared from public space around 2015, seven years before the end of its programming period. The New Alliance can thus be considered and analysed as a case of failed policy, which has not achieved its declared goals. In this thesis, I examine the discourses of this initiative in official documents of selected G7 countries, focusing on how this initiative was constructed and framed in the wider context of their approaches to global food security and hunger. The selection of the analysed countries (USA, France, and the UK) reflects their distinct positions on the New Alliance. This analysis is supplemented by discourse analysis of western and African civil society actors who took an active role either in a New Alliance project or the anti-New Alliance campaign. I assumed that examination and confrontation of different positions of these countries with respect to the New Alliance may uncover different conceptualisations of food security and hunger in Africa associated...
Representation of (former) African colonies in 19th and 20th century domestic travel writing
Martinek, Adam ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Šarše, Vojtěch (referee)
This diploma thesis analyzes 19th and 20th Czech language travel literature from (former) African colonies. The thesis is rooted in postcolonial theory - namely Osterhammel's synthesis of colonialism as a structure and an ideology, as well as Said's theory of orientalism. A key theoretical aspect of this work is Sarah Lemmen's updated notion of noncolonial orientalism, which arose out of her empirical work on Czech/Czechoslovak travel writing. Lemmen's concept addresses the specific standing of the Czech traveler vis-à-vis the colony, as they were not a representative of any world power, yet still exhibited orientalist views on colonies and the colonized. This work also pays special attention to the influence of socialist ideology on travel literature published between the years 1948 and 1989. The research questions which this work aims to answer are as follows: a) how is colonialism represented in Czech travel literature?, b) how is decolonization represented?, c) how do these travelogues portray Africans and their relationship to Europeans? These questions aim at understanding the authors' relationship with colonialism and orientalism as both ideology and practice which they encountered in Africa. The thesis consists of an analysis of nineteen of potential fifty-eight travelogues written by...
Obstacle Avoidance System
Dražil, Jan ; Raichl, Petr (referee) ; Novotný, Josef (advisor)
This thesis deals with methods for the problem of navigation and movement of autonomous vehicles between obstacles. The thesis first describes in general terms algorithms for motion planning and obstacle avoidance. Then, the thesis discusses the PX4 firmware for UAV control. The thesis proposes a custom obstacle avoidance algorithm designed for UAVs. The sensor used for obstacle detection is a stereo camera. This algorithm was implemented in Python using the ROS framework and tested in the Gazebo simulation environment. The results are discussed.
Fusion of drone sensors for motion planning
Semerád, Jakub ; Novotný, Josef (referee) ; Janoušek, Jiří (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with drone flight planning in an unknown environment. In order for a drone to be able to perceive its environment, it must be equipped with the necessary sensory equipment. This thesis discusses possible sensor equipment suitable for flight coordination and collision avoidance. Also, software for sensor data processing and drone motion planning are described and used here. LiDAR and depth camera were used for the experiment in this thesis. In the experiment the data from both sensors are fused together through ROS software and displayed in RViz simulation environment. This data are suitable for subsequent use in drone motion planning and collision avoidance.
International system of football: international migration of Czech football players and the role of players' agents
Musil, Petr ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Flemr, Libor (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to bring more insight into the international organization of football. The scope of the analysis is the institutional framework of football and migration of professional football players. And in particular functioning and struggle between and within the world's football governing body FIFA and the EU. More stress is devoted to the process of migration of players at the global as well as European levels, and the structural development of the migration of the Czech players abroad. The former is analyzed for the last few years, while the latter between the seasons of 1993/94 and 2007/08. The focus is also given to the study of mechanism of international migration, which tries to reveal the role of the FIFA player's agents in the international transfers of the Czech players. The results of this work are based on data obtained from the internet databases containing information about foreign engagement of players and on a number of interviews with the Czech FIFA players' agents and their assistants. These were organized by the author during his original research. The analysis shows that the football's labour markets are more of regional than global character and are determined by the geographic, cultural and historical conditions. Moreover the analysis depicts that for the structure of...
