Environmental migration and legal instruments of its prevention in the Czech Republic
Chaloupková, Alena ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
The thesis deals with the issue of environmental migration and with possible legal instruments of its prevention in the Czech Republic. Based on an analysis of the extent of the issue, it identifies three areas of environmental migration causes that are relevant in the conditions of the Czech Republic: (1) climate change and its impacts, (2) implementation of development projects, and (3) industrial accidents and pollution. It analyses and evaluates important legal instruments of prevention and protection of the inhabitants in these areas. In particular, climate protection, adaptation to climate change impacts (floods and droughts), protection against excessive resettlement due to development projects (mining, water reservoirs and building of roads), protection against industrial accidents and air protection are assessed. In conclusion, the findings are summarized and the most important legal deficiencies are formulated, eventually some modifications de lege ferenda are proposed.
Legal Regulation of Environmental Impact Assessment
Nagy, Jakub ; Sobotka, Michal (advisor) ; Stejskal, Vojtěch (referee)
The subject of this diploma thesis is the analysis of the legal regulation of environmental impact assessment (EIA). EIA is one of the horizontal instruments of environmental law. It is based on the principle of prevention and sustainable development. The Czech legislation can be found primarily in the EIA Act which, to a large extent, is the result of the transposition of the EIA Directive. National and European regulation of environmental impact assessment is significantly influenced by international law, in particular by the Espoo Convention and the Aarhus Convention. Non-legally binding documents are also very important. During the environmental impact assessment process, which consists of several phases, the significant impacts of the project on the environment and public health are examined and evaluated. Not all projects are subject to assessment, but only those which are stipulated directly by law ("obligatorily assessed projects") or by the relevant administrative authority in the screening procedure ("facultatively assessed projects"). The result of the assessment, which is performed by authorized experts, serves as an objective expert basis for the so-called consequential proceedings, in which a decision is made on the approval of the project. The environmental impact assessment process...
Environmental protection within specific proceedings pursuant the Building Act
Šimák, Filip ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
Environmental protection within specific proceedings pursuant the Building Act Unrestrained construction activity damages natural resources and diverse environmental components in irreversible or in difficult-to-repair ways, thereby further thwarting thriving or even surviving of the World population. In the Czech legal system, the regulatory measures of administrative bodies, along with the participation of the affected stakeholders, contribute to the environmental protection of the individual development project. This dissertation examines the methods, means, and tools of environmental protection within the framework of designated proceedings regulating the construction. Specifically, it analyzes the possibilities of implementing protective environmental measures within the construction-permitting procedures enshrined in the provisions of Sections 103 to 117 of the Building Act. Five construction-permitting regimes are examined separately: the building permit process; notification; public law contract; notification with certificate of the authorized inspector and projects requiring neither building permit nor notification. If followed lawfully, each of the regimes allows the prospect applicant to commence a relevant construction project. Permitting procedures are significantly influenced by...
The role of the municipality in environmental protection - selected legal aspects
Švarcová, Kateřina ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
The dissertation deals with selected legal aspects of the role of municipalities in the protection of environment. The criterion of divided competence is used for an analysis of municipalities and attention is paid exclusively to small ones, the so-called number-one municipalities. The aim of this work is to identify and analyze, on the basis of legislation, legal doctrine and case law, municipal instruments in environmental protection and the legal conditions of its implementation, and then to identify the main shortcomings of the legislation suggesting ways to overcome them. With a detailed analysis of selected instruments the work analyzes the examined phenomenon, i.e. "the role of the municipality in the protection environment ", while verifying the set hypotheses and answering the question "what is the role of the municipality in the environment protection" in accordance with the legislation.
Building law environmentalisation - status quo and perspectives
Židek, Dominik ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
The dissertation deals with a phenomenon called building law environmentalisation. The aim of this thesis is to analyse the basic factors leading to the entry of environmental influences into the processes of public building law on the basis of legal regulations, doctrinal opinions and very extensive case law of the administrative courts. The main content of the thesis is the analysis of these factors and the subsequent generalisation of the conclusions of the analysed phenomenon. The thesis answers the question: what is the extent to which is the current public building law influenced by "environmental acts"? Thus what does specifically influence the processes of public building law by environmental law and what is the extent of this influence? The text of the dissertation is divided into seven chapters. The first three of them can be perceived as a gradually concretized general framework of the problem, from the initial facts about the EU legal requirements, through the basic characteristics of the building law to the detailed analysis of the individual administrative tools ("final" administrative acts) of building law. The next three chapters are devoted to the detailed examination of mechanisms for assessing and taking into consideration the interests of environmental protection in "decision-...
Czech Energy Law in the Context of Environmental Protection
Příborský, Jan ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
The dissertation deals with legal regulation of energy in the Czech Republic in the context of environmental protection. Power is the broadly conceived by the author because it includes not only the stage of obtaining energy resources, production, and the distribution of energy, but also the activities related to energy conservation and dealing with energy waste. For these individual phases, the author introduces the concept of the energy chain which is understood as a set of interrelated developmental stages of energy. Energy law is defined by the author as a law that regulates people's behavior towards usable energy at all stages of the energy chain. Endangerment and damage to the environment may occur (and often does occur) at each stage of the energy chain. This work emphasizes the principles and instruments of environmental protection which can effectively fulfill their function in energy legislation. The aim of the work is to find and understand the context of principles and instruments of environmental protection in the Czech energy law. This knowledge may then allow for an assessment of energy legislation de lege lata, including introducing specific proposals de lege ferenda and possible policy changes. The most important and overarching principle in all stages of the energy chain is the...

The role of NGOs in the protection of environment
Zahálková, Kristýna ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
1 The role of NGOs in the protection of environment Abstract The topic of this thesis is the role of civil societies in the protection of environment. The civil societies, the most common type of NGOs in the Czech Republic, are legal persons of the private law that, unlike public administration bodies, contribute to the protection of environment voluntarily. This fact however does not undermine the significance of their involvement. In fact, in order to achieve the highest level of the protection of environment, it is necessary that the state treats the civil societies and other subjects of the non-profit sector as its partners. This thesis is divided into two parts that are consequently divided into chapters, subchapters and sub-subchapters. In the first part, the general starting points, in particular legal aspects of the non-profit area and the law of civil societies, including their assessment, are dealt with. Subsequently, the attention is moved to the position of civil societies in the area of environmental law, and to general starting points concerning the public participation in the environmental matters and its division. The second part looks into the roles of the civil societies in the protection of environment itself. Two types of these roles are distinguished: the conflict roles and the...
