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 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...

Hlaváčová, Lenka ; Stejskal, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Průchová, Ivana (referee) ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
Public participation in environmental decision-making processes Abstract The main goal of this dissertation is to analyse the current legal regulation of public participation in environmental decision-making processes and on the basis of such findings to contribute to the further development of this institute. Public participation in decision-making processes is an important tool for environmental protection, whether we look at it from the point of view of everyone's right to a favourable environment or as a separate value that needs to be protected for itself. It is a relatively new institute in the Czech legal system. Its gradual incorporation into Czech legislation has only occurred in the last 30 years, especially in connection with the Czech Republic's accession to the Aarhus Convention and the European Union. Despite its recognition at the international level, obligations arising for the Czech Republic from the Aarhus Convention and EU law and a number of benefits that come with it, the possibilities of the members of the public in the Czech Republic to participate in environmental decision-making has been significantly reduced in recent years. Therefore, in addition to the analysis of current legislation, the dissertation, to a limited extent, focus on the development of the institute of public...

The main objective of this thesis has been to discover the way to success in climate litigation cases based on human rights argumentation. The aim has been to generate an exemplary set of advices for drafters aiming at filing a climate lawsuit. Together with this question, the author had a particular interest in assessing the capability of human rights arguments to succeed on its own without additional support from other legal areas, such as tort law. The leading methodology used in this thesis was a comparison of legal arguments...
