Motivation for informal volunteering on the case of aid to people on the run
Pouková, Veronika ; Muhič Dizdarevič, Selma (advisor) ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with understanding the motivation of volunteers involved in helping people on the run. The volunteers' motivation has been studied in the case of the Hlavák Initiative, which helps in the so-called Middle East agenda to people from the Middle East or African countries. This area has been viewed negatively by the state and the public in the Czech Republic since the start of the European migration crisis. The theoretical part of the diploma thesis contains basic backgrounds important for examining the motivation of volunteers in informal surroundings. The main focus is on volunteering and individual approaches for exploring the motivation for volunteering. This section also describes the context of the whole aid to persons on the run in the Czech environment. A research methodology is presented in the empirical part of the diploma thesis, followed by a section describing the research results. The results have been achieved by analysing semi-structured interviews conducted with eight volunteers of the Hlavák Initiative. The research of the diploma thesis took place just before the Hlavák Initiative formalised from the informal grouping into an association. Key words Informal volunteering, motivation, people on the run, aid, the Hlavák Initiative
Motivation and sustainability of volunteers
Buksová, Alena ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (advisor) ; Dohnalová, Marie (referee)
This master's thesis describes and analyzes the testimonies of long-term volunteers from the animal advocacy organization, Svoboda zvířat (Animal Freedom). The theoretical part provides an overview of professional sources, concepts, and models related to volunteering, motivation for long-term volunteering, and volunteer sustainability. The conceptual model of the causes of long-term volunteering by Louise A. Penner (2002) was crucial for this thesis, upon which the empirical part of the work was built. It includes authentic testimonies from long-term volunteers of Svoboda zvířat. The aim was to determine what motivates volunteers from the advocacy organization for animal rights to engage in volunteer activities, what encourages them to sustain long-term volunteering, and what, on the other hand, discourages them from volunteering. Keywords: volunteer, volunteering, nonprofit organizations, civil society, motivation, sustainability

Cooperation of the profit and non-profit sector in the field of CSR
Peterová, Tereza ; Legnerová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (referee)
The thesis will explore the cooperation between the for-profit and non-profit sectors in the field of corporate social responsibility. The theoretical section will be divided into three main chapters, which will first present the overall theoretical conceptual framework of the non- profit sector. Afterwards, the concept of CSR as it is understood today will be introduced through an analysis of the literature. Above all, this part of the thesis will concentrate on the potential benefits of implementing CSR strategies in the organizations. The last chapter will deal with the actors that can engage in the field of CSR and will clarify how CSR-based actors can be linked in a cross-sector collaboration. In the empirical part of the thesis, we will look at how the concept of CSR is implemented by the company Albert Ltd. in cooperation with the Albert Foundation in its activities, what activities occur within the cooperation and what it provides for both actors.

The concept of crisis assistance by participants of social services planning in Liberec
Havránková, Alena ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (advisor) ; Kvašňáková, Lenka (referee)
Society is currently struggling with various negative phenomena, one of which is suicide. According to the latest available sources, the highest rate of suicide in the Czech Republic is in the Liberec region. One possible tool for reducing the suicide rate could be social crisis assistance services. However, when we look at the social services register of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of the Czech Republic, we find that crisis assistance is not available in all regions. According to this register, no such service exists in the Liberec region, including its capital city Liberec. Social service planning is essential to community planning in the city of Liberec. How is it possible that this type of service is not available here? To answer this question, it is necessary to go back to the beginning and first ask how this concept is perceived by the involved parties. This thesis aims to provide insight into the understanding of crisis assistance among the parties engaged in community planning in Liberec, and to show how it is reflected in different attitudes in the process of planning social services in the area. Keywords: crisis, crisis assistance, crisis intervention, community planning, community social work, construction of social reality, discourse theory, discursive approaches
Grey wolf in the magazine Myslivost
Grosser, Dominik ; Novák, Arnošt (advisor) ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (referee)
The thesis deals with the tension between the hunting perspective and strict protection of the grey wolf in the context of the Czech Republic. Within the theoretical part, I construct an understanding of hunting from historical and contemporary practical perspectives, discuss its "traditional" conception, present the naturalistic arguments for the return of the wolf, its current distribution, legal protection and the obstacles that may hinder its return. At the same time, I further problematize the conflict between the return among local people and the discourse of strict wolf protection, in which elements of power asymmetry, based on foreign literature, stand out due to the imposition of dominant and hegemonic protection within the public space. With these assumptions in mind, I enter the subsequent critical discursive analysis of the journal Myslivost, published by the Czech- Moravian Hunting Union. For my work, I set out to unravel the modes of representation through which the Myslivost magazine constructs the social reality of the grey wolf, while also analysing the ideologue(s) that underpin and enable the legitimisation of the discourse in question. On the basis of my analysis, I find that the wolf is represented within Myslivost magazine primarily as a "mongrel" and "artificially released"...
A Loving Home for Every Animal: Civic Engagement of Founders of Dog and Cat Shelters
Urbanová, Adéla ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (advisor) ; Šťovíčková Jantulová, Magdaléna (referee)
This diploma thesis presents the conclusions of a qualitative research that dealt with the civic engagement of female founders of private shelters for dogs and cats. The topic is grasped on the basis of the theory of social movements and with the help of models bridging the opposition of volunteerism and activism. At the same time, the interpretation of the results of the thematic analysis relies on the concept of zoopolis, which presents citizenship as a category applicable to human-animal relations. The founders of private shelters approach the animals in their care as unmistakable individuals, beings with personhood and actors who can be and are invited to participate in decisions affecting their lives.
