Social construction of inequalities in an access to higher education and admission exams
Rossová, Iveta ; Balon, Jan (advisor) ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (referee)
The thesis deals with the construction of inequalities in the access to the tertiary education with the special emphasis on entrance exams to the universities. The aim is to explore how the entrance exams as the gate to the universities are perceived by students - the actors who are the most affected by these inequalities in education, according to relevant research of these inequalities. The thesis studies how these actors perceive their position and situation within the entrance process, what situations (if any) are constructed as unequal by these actors, who is affected by such inequalities and how does he/she copes with them. The research question is seen from the perspective of interactionist constructivism and answered by applying methods of grounded theory and semi-structured in-depth interviews.

Rossová, Iveta ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (advisor) ; Pospíšilová, Marie (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the cultural conflict in terms of household maintenance and child care in the Czech-Guinean families living in Czech republic. The goal of the thesis is to investigate both explicit and implicit aspects of conflicts caused by different cultural family backgrounds of those examined Czech-Guinean families. In the first part is introduced the basic terminology (as family, marriage, kinship), latest trends of family behavior both worldwide and in Czech republic and the theory of interethnic partnerships. There is also a brief overview of historical and cultural influences within Guinean territory, presentation of main Guinean values in terms of family behavior and household maintenance and current trends in Guinean family behavior. Second part of the thesis describes the conceptual framework of the research, which is based on a case study - particularly on Stake's instrictive approach - and uses combination of two methods of qualitative research, namely semi- structured interview and participated observation. The research itself showed the possibility of observation of similar structures and everyday practice - both of those performing correlation with actual family's cycles; further it identified common trends in behavior of partners and joint strategies in conflict solving.
