Self-presentation strategies of political candidates in the Czech presidential campaign 2023
Balážová, Zuzana ; Shavit, Anna (advisor) ; Konrádová, Marcela (referee)
The bachelor thesis examines the role of visual communication in politics and the formation of self-presentation strategies of selected candidates during the Czech presidential elections in 2023. The theoretical part of the thesis introduces visual political communication, cognitive processing of images and the formation of political image through visual frames and relevant dimensions. The analytical part of the thesis uses quantitative and qualitative content analysis to explore the self-presentation strategies of candidates Petr Pavel, Andrej Babiš, Danuša Nerudová and Pavel Fischer on Instagram. The aim of the study was to find out how the selected political candidates used the social media Instagram for self-presentation and which visual frames they emphasized. An analysis of 1,371 Instagram posts of the selected candidates reveals a preference for the ideal candidate frame over the populist candidate frame. The analysis equally reveals gender differences in the use of the dimensions of compassion. The work further explores users' interactions with different visual frames and dimensions, and slight differences in the number of interactions are noted.

Dejmková, Tereza ; Konrádová, Marcela (advisor) ; Shavit, Anna (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with targeting and positioning of the presidential election campaign of Petr Pavel and focuses mainly on addressing the youngest generation of voters, Generation Z. The 2023 presidential election was different in several ways, but one of them was, for example, the targeting of some candidates to Generation Z. The generation currently includes the majority of voters who participated in the presidential election for the first time, and who may also have followed it more closely for the first time. The aim of this thesis is therefore to find out to what extent the targeting and positioning of the campaign was adapted to Generation Z in the development of the strategy, and also to find out whether Petr Pavel was able to reach this target group through the campaign and through which steps he achieved this. The theoretical part of the thesis first describes and defines the tools of political marketing, characterizes Generation Z and the specifics of their voting behaviour. In the practical part of the thesis, the aforementioned tools of political marketing are applied to the campaign of Petr Pavel. The information for this part of the thesis was obtained from a personal interview with the marketing director of the Petr Pavel campaign, Martin Klčo, conducted by the author of the...

Echoing political ideologies? A Critical Discourse Analysis of the 'Os Pingos nos Is' Coverage during the 2022 Brazilian Elections
Campolina Rebello Guerrero, Daniela ; Shavit, Anna (advisor) ; Němcová Tejkalová, Alice (referee)
The importance of ideology and political discourse in driving voting behavior in democratic societies has become a central concern in research. In this context, journalism plays a critical role in how electoral information and ideological positions are disseminated and shape public opinion. Given polarization tendencies in countries like Brazil which undermine the legitimacy of the electoral process, the role of journalism in democratic societies has been increasingly put into question. Especially during political elections, where people rely on information to make informed decisions, the discursive power of journalistic content holds the potential to affect people's voting choices. This thesis, therefore, aims to investigate the ideological positions conveyed in Jovem Pan's show 'Os Pingos nos Is' during Brazil's 2022 presidential runoff campaign. The research adopts a qualitative approach and uses Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) to analyze five selected videos from the show on YouTube, focusing on the dominant discourses and themes. The study reveals that the show took a pro- Bolsonaro stance, displaying strong ideological polarization. The discourse featured beliefs in electoral fraud and attempted to undermine the legitimacy of the electoral process by verbally attacking Brazilian...
Anonymous Private Party Funding in Denmark: How do journalists cover this issue?
Merved, August Kaae ; Shavit, Anna (advisor) ; Turková, Kateřina (referee)
This thesis intends to examine the amount- and reasons for the news coverage related to the controversial party funding system in Denmark. This is achieved through comparisons of other political cases during the Danish 2022 and 2019 elections in a quantitative media analysis. The results are then analyzed and discussed using the data from eight interviewed Danish journalists working on some of the seven most prominent Danish media outlets. These qualitative interview data provide insights into reasons, motives, and causes for the fluctuation and difference in the coverage between the other observed and analyzed political cases in the past two elections. The findings show that the journalists deem party funding a complex and technical subject, but still, a subject deemed important to cover by journalists. However, in a fast-paced news agenda, the non-transparent party funding is covered less in comparison with news topics or cases during elections that are more emotionally charged and personalized, or topics that can provide a more direct influence on society, according to the qualitative data - as opposed to the more complex cases of political funding.
"These are citizens of our country. We are their servants." A case study of Pierre Poilievre as an example of growing Canadian populism within the framework of Cas Mudde's scholarship
Mola-Schmidt, Amelia ; Shavit, Anna (advisor) ; Němcová Tejkalová, Alice (referee)
As scholars who have studied populism in the Canadian context have noted, Canada has previously held a false sense of immunity to the rise of populism due its multiculturalism that was seen as a barrier for the traditional xenophobic and culturally exclusive values of populist politicians in other Western democracies. Forms of populism that have arisen in Canada have taken the form of "neoliberal populism", an ideology rooted in fiscal conservatism and the belief that less government intervention is better. However, the election of Pierre Poilievre as leader of the Federal Conservative party has indicated a shift in the political spectrum, that populism is gaining traction on a mainstream level. As Cas Mudde has written about in his literature on populism, the mainstream media play an active role in shaping the discourse around populists, often giving them more air time due to their sensationalist behaviour that make for viral soundbites. So how has the Canadian media responded to Poilievre, and how does the political alignment of media impact the coverage he gets? This study will seek to answer these questions and provide insights into how the Canadian media may contribute to further political polarisation in society.

Vítek, Tomáš ; Shavit, Anna (advisor) ; Konrádová, Marcela (referee)
The bachelor's thesis titled Correlation between the Popularity of the ANO Brand in the Moravian-Silesian Region and the Success of Elected Mayor Tomáš Macura in the 2022 Municipal Elections is dedicated to a case study of Tomáš Macura within the framework of municipal politics in Ostrava. The theoretical part of the thesis defines the terms associated with brand, branding, political brand, and personal political brand. It is followed by a chapter on the socio-political context, where the work summarizes the ANO 2011 party's results at different political levels, with a specific focus on the Ostrava region. This chapter also addresses the rise of the ANO 2011 party, along with its history. A subsequent subsection is dedicated directly to Tomáš Macura and his political career. In the analytical part, the thesis delves into the analysis of internal party research and the media visibility of Tomáš Macura prior to the 2022 municipal elections. The result of the study reveals that both parties - Tomáš Macura and the political party ANO 2011 - benefited from their coexistence, thus creating a symbiotic relationship between them.
Political institutes in the Czech Republic - political communication and managerial relationship with parent subjects
Dolejš, Jakub ; Konrádová, Marcela (advisor) ; Shavit, Anna (referee)
This thesis examines the managerial relationship of selected political institutes in the Czech Republic with their parent entities from the perspective of political management theory, specifically through the function of political planning. Furthermore, the author applies theoretical concepts related to political institutes to this relationship. The second area of research is the political institutes' communication within their activities and the targeted audiences of their communication. Thus, the thesis investigates whether institutes in the Czech Republic are autonomous in setting their agenda based on data obtained from semi-structured interviews with representatives of policy institutes in the Czech Republic. The interviews and analysis were supplemented with data from content analysis of key documents of political institutes, such as founding documents, statutes or websites. The thesis thus contributes to an area that has not yet been academically explored.
